Quentin Tarantino‘s press agent should be working 24/ 7 today.
Amid Uma Thurman‘s upsetting confession that she was bullied into doing a stunt on Kill Bill which left her with a lasting physical injury, a 2003 interview with Howard Stern has actually considering that resurfaced, painting the renowned director as a beast. Particularly, while going over Roman Polanski‘s sexual attack of a 13- year-old woman, Tarantino declared the victim “wanted to have it.”

What a dreadful thing to state. In an effort to minimize his peer’s rape scandal, Quentin informed Stern at the time:
“She wanted to have it… He didn’t rape a 13-year-old. It was statutory rape. That’s not quite the same thing. … He had sex with a minor, all right. That’s not rape. To me, when you use the word rape, you’re talking about violent, throwing them down.”
Ummmm, that’s a disgustingly strong thing to state. Specifically, considering that Roman’s victim was apparently drugged prior to the attack.
The Pulp Fiction director included:
“Throwing the word ‘rape’ around is like throwing the word ‘racist’ around. It doesn’t apply to everything that people use it for.”
Oh, Quentin, noooooo. To make matters worse, when Stern’s cohost Robin Quivers attempted to describe that the girl did not wish to make love with Polanski and was potentially drugged, Tarantino didn’t backtrack his position. He just restated:
“She wanted to have it.”
Although, Tarantino DID acknowledge that if the attack occurred versus a child of his, he would’ve “beat the hell out of” Roman. The now 54- year-old implicated the teen of being “down to party with Roman.” Tsk, tsk.
Listen to the distressing audio on your own (listed below).
Polanski ultimately pleaded guilty to illegal sex with a small, however ran away the United States prior to he might be sentenced. If Tarantino has actually altered his position amidst the #MeToo and Time’s Up motions??
, we question.
