Spike Lee on ‘Django Unchained’: “American Slavery Was Not a Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western. It Was A Holocaust. My Ancestors Are Slaves”

Yesterday, director Spike Lee ripped into Quentin Tarantino’s new ultra-violent slave revenge fantasy pic Django Unchained. Lee told VIBETV, “I can’t speak on it cause I’m not gonna see it. All I’m going to say is that it’s disrespectful to my ancestors. That’s just me … I’m not speaking on behalf of anybody else.” He added on Twitter, “American Slavery Was Not a Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western. It Was A Holocaust. My Ancestors Are Slaves. Stolen From Africa. I Will Honor Them.”

Django Unchained is slated to premiere tomorrow. It has been under heavy fire for its violent depictions in the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre, as well as its liberal use of the n-word.
