Django Unchained N-Word Use: LA Reid Weighs In!

| Filed under: Film Flickers

Producer extraordinaire and X Factor mentor LA Reid attended a screening of Quentin Tarantino's crazy controversial film Django Unchained on board Diddy's St. Barths yacht over Christmas…

And the dude thought it was SO nice he watched it twice!

LA expressed:

"Django Unchained is a powerful story and incredibly entertaining movie. The performances are all stellar, particularly Leo DiCaprio’s and Samuel L. Jackson’s . . . Jamie Foxx was also very strong."

BUT Reid was NOT impressed by Tarantino's excessive use of the N-Word!

The music mogul shared:

"One criticism: Although the N-word was unfortunately used liberally during the time the film depicted, I felt Q.T. should have approached the use of the word more sensitively and used it a lot less . . . It’s a painful part of America’s history and still an open wound."

LA Reid's criticisms of Django are expressed by many, including famed director Spike Lee.

But, Quentin stands by his choice to use the n-word over a hundred times, and just as many support his decision!

And obviously, as is evidenced in most of Tarantino's films, he does what he does and he doesn't give a f******ck.

Kinda like Rihanna.

WHO SHOULD TOTALLY BE IN THE NEXT KILL BILL!

    The "N" word…. What's up with that. I here Whites, Asians, Latinos, Blacks call each other that all the time. Racial card is what I call on this. The movie was awesome. Spike and the rest are just hating on it. Feed the hungry people of the world that is sensitive reality.

    Says a man who prob calls all of his buddies "What up my Ni@@@@!" Its a bloody movie, its a horible part of the past (and future sadly) that people did refer to the black race that way. Do I agree, hell no! The use of the word does not define a group of people. I don't use the word, and hell I don't like hearing others use it.I saw Django and it made sense for he movie, come on people ( LA REID) get your head out of your ass!

    The movie was done in a time that word was used and it should bring anger .Anger that people were treated like animals not worth anything and were killed without a care.Yet our young generation thinks its ok to use it between themselves ,to use it in Music ,in videos.These critics should start using there Star power and show that its wrong to use this word so freely and remind them why this word is sooo wrong to use.

    Just saw it, it didn't seem like gratuitous use of the word to me. It seemed like a period piece would. Just like they use to say "kikes, chinaman, chinks, etc".
