The always controversial and equally appreciated, Quentin Tarantino caused quite a stir at the  Globes with his use of the N-word back stage to justify his choice to not soften his storytelling approach with his award-winning film “Django Unchained.”

According to both The Hollywood Reporter and E! Online, “Tarantino engaged the conversation by using the N-word, to the silence and awkward whistling of onlookers.”

“I think it’s kind of ridiculous, because no one can actually say with a straight face that we use the word more than it was used in 1858 in Mississippi. So since they can’t say that, what they’re basically [saying] is I should lie,” Tarantino said regarding the racially-charged language spoken in his award-winning film. “I should pretty it up. I should lie, and I don’t lie when it comes to my characters and the stories I tell.”
