Listen To Your Dad

It may very well be a tempest in a small to middling-sized teapot, but it is getting interesting.

Quentin Tarantino's father, actor Tony Tarantino, became a member of the NYPD PBA in protest at his son's actions.
Add another bellow from the police unions condemning director Quentin Tarantino and his movies, plus a slap from his own father, amidst continuing deafening silence from the Oscar-winning filmmaker.

"I love my son and have great respect for him as an artist but he is dead wrong in calling police officers, particularly in New York City where I grew up, murderers," said actor Tony Tarantino in a statement released Friday by the New York Police Patrolmen's Benevolent Association.

"He is a passionate man and that comes out in his art but sometimes he lets his passion blind him to the facts and to reality."

Police unions in New York, Philadelphia and Los Angeles have already called for a boycott of Tarantino films — his latest, The Hateful Eight, lands on Christmas Day — and now the New Jersey State Police Benevolent Association has joined the shame-on-Tarantino chorus.
