Sarah Silverman Sounds Off On Django Unchained N-Word Controversy!

| Filed under: Film FlickersSarah Silverman

And guess what?! Girl doesn't get what all the fuss is about.

Iconic filmmaker Spike Lee recently criticized Quentin Tarantino's film Django Unchained for it's excessive use of the n-word, and claimed that the entire production was "disrespetful to his ancestors."

Well, comedian Sarah Silverman — who is actually a huge Spike Lee fan — recently voiced her own opinion of the film, sharing:

"Doesn't it take place like during slavery? Wouldn't it be odd if they didn't have that horrific word in it? [Spike's] got a lot of mishegas with a lot of art. I think you can't really tell art what to do."

LOLz! Fair enough!

And like every Quentin movie, Django Unchained is not going to please everybody…

So if you don't want to hear the n-word 110 times, then you probably shouldn't go see it!

    Man, that girl is such a cutie. Gross as hell, but a cutie. And spot on too re: Django/Lee. After all, it's Tarantino for gods sake; what did he expect, a Disney Slave movie?

    Unfortunately for Spike Lee he has become so irrelevant so his stirring up of controversy has very little effect. I know he's always had something to say about the "white man" in previous years and people listened but considering he hasn't done anything good for years he's now just falling on deaf ears.

    If the movie is set in an actual time period I have no issues with them being true to the language of the day.

    Tarantino used n*gger quite a lot in Pulp Fiction (the character he played said it a lot) and suddenly now it's a problem?

    Would Spike Lee say anything if a black man directed the movie.

    funny how tons of black films have the N word littered throughout. Clearly another case of a black man implying that only blacks can use that word. but SpikeLee has always had a chip on his shoulder and a stick up his ass. He's another racist black riddled with hypocrisy.

    This guy needs to get a sense of humour! My friends who are black went to see this film and said it was amazing and found it hilarious when the N-word was being used.
    If they found it comical, why is this guy getting so butt hurt? Lighten the fuck up ..

    Re: well ok

    Besides Eminem, rappers don't really use the word fag that often. Certainly not in the last 5 years.

    Art outside reality has little meaning however. The art director of Django is also functioning outside reality:

    Was this film set before it was made into a bad word? It used to be an innocent, neutral point of reference.
