Quentin Tarantino has been catching a ton of flack for DJANGO UNCHAINED over the past few weeks (most recently for the questionably racist line of tie-in figurines), and in this interview with Channel 4, the eccentric director finally cracked. Prompted to draw a correlation between the violence in his own films and violence in reality, the director simply refused to respond, stating:

Before you start to worry… YES! I’ve read it many times before.
