Quentin Tarantino: Chicago, Houston Philadelphia, LAPD, NYPD Unions Boycott 'Hateful Eight'

The boycott against Quentin Tarantino is getting worse and worse day by day as more and more police unions join together to boycott Quentin Tarantino movies.

According to reports, the Chicago, Houston, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and New York police departments have all vowed to boycott all of Quentin Tarantino movies. And in an industry where money talks Quentin Tarantino may be in trouble. The Chicago police force has just announced that they will be joining the five largest police department unions in the country in their battle against Quentin Tarantino. This all started after comments Quentin Tarantino made during a Saturday rally protesting police brutality in New York City. From The Hollywood Reporter:
Chicago Fraternal Order of Police president Dean Angelo tells The Hollywood Reporter, The Chicago police union "joins with others from coast to coast moving to boycott anything and everything, including his new release [The Hateful Eight>." "He has an obligation to be more responsible," according to a similar statement from the New Jersey State Police union, which has also joined the boycott. "This is not a movie, this is real life where police officers lives are impacted by his words."
Earlier this week, the Houston Police Officer's union called Quentin Tarantino's comments "sickening". "To use inflammatory rhetoric and imply that police officers are murderers does nothing to repair the fractured relationships with the community," according to the Houston police union. "It simply makes things more difficult and only deepens the divide.
“We ask officers to stop working special assignments or off-duty jobs, such as providing security, traffic control or technical advice for any of Tarantino’s projects,” the organization said in a statement. "We need to send a loud and clear message that such hateful rhetoric against police officers in unacceptable."
"I'm a human being with a conscience," said Tarantino at the Saturday rally. "And if you believe there's murder going on, then you need to rise up and stand up against it. I'm here to say I'm on the side of the murdered." But, Quentin Tarantino's comments may make his next movie a major Box Office disaster. With well over a hundred thousand people associated with these major police department unions, the new rally against Quentin Tarantino can eventually impact his movie career. However, based on upon Quentin Tarantino's comments during the NYC rally, don't expect him to easily back down."When I see murders, I do not stand by. ... I have to call a murder a murder, and I have to call the murderers the murderers," according to multiple reports.
