After all the speculation, last night’s Golden Globes was the first time that observers caught up in the controversy surrounding “Django Unchained” got to see how the movie would be rewarded in Hollywood.Follow @newsoneofficial
Quentin Tarantino took home the big prize, Best Screenplay, and not 2 minutes into his backstage interview, he dropped the n-bomb.
“If somebody is out there actually saying when it comes to the word ‘n—–,’ the fact that I was using it in the movie more than it was being used in the antebellum south in Mississippi, then feel free to make that case. But no one’s actually making that case. They are saying I should lie, that I should whitewash, that I should massage, and I never do that when it comes to my characters.”
According to E! Online, the room fell silent, with one reporter letting out a low whistle of disbelief.
Actor Don Cheadle tried to lighten the moment, by doing what else?
Dropping the word himself.
“Please no n*gger questions,” Cheadle told reporters. “Black people questions are all right.”

As previously reported by NewsOne, comedian Katt Williams said that Tarantino does not get a pass to say the word — even if Jamie Foxx and Samuel L. Jackson thinks that it’s acceptable.
“Quentin Tarantino thinks he can say the N-word. But I checked with all of Ni**adom and nobody knows where he got his pass from. I hope he didn’t get it from Samuel L. Jackson and Jamie Foxx cause they aren’t going to help you when I see you.”
When our photog tried to compare QT to Steven Spielberg (who made “Amistad” in 1997), Katt shot back, “Quentin Tarantino is no Steven Spielberg. Steven Spielberg doesn’t wanna be black, Quentin Tarantino thinks he is. So when he meets a real ni**a, we’ll see if he is or not.”
