Oh, Quentin Tarantino. What a strange individual. I feel like he’s a bit like Elon Musk in that there are a group of his fans who will fiercely defend everything he has ever done because they believe he’s some kind of great artist, while the rest of us sit back and ask, “How much more weird and terrible stuff can he do before you stop defending him?”
One of the most sickening things about him is that he has a history of defending other rich and famous men who have done some absolutely terrible deeds. For example, he tried to downplay Roman Polanski’s actions and confessed to knowing what Harvey Weinstein was up to yet just attempted to brush it under the rug. Yes, at least eventually, he came forward and said something regarding Weinstein atrocities—but does that really count for anything?
