Tarantino says that he was a part of the campaign where he bore witness to incredible stories and his statement were in favor of those stories and not against cops.
Quentin Tarantino participated in the protest on 24th October against police brutality. Quentin walked arm in arm with the protestors. He said that he went down to the protest and heard all the people tell their stories.
He said that to hear and to experience these people pain and their struggle was something incredible and real. He said that he was photographed on the rally with his arms around a young woman.
He told LATimes that he had met her at the rally and she had lost her brother to the police. At that time he spoke about his experience with the protestors and how police brutality was a major issue to be addressed.
He said that not all policemen were murderers but all the people present on the protest were victims of the hands of the policemen that have exceeded their violence across the line of duty.
At a sensitive time like the protest, when a NYPD policeman had been killed, Tarantino’s words strung the wrong chords with the police. It has been reported that he has been receiving calls from police that they would boycott his latest movie, The Hateful Eight. He has been called ‘anti-cop’ and apparently the police are not happy with his statements against cops.
Tarantino says he will not be intimidated in the matter by police. He said that instead of focusing on the key issue of police brutality, they were targeting him. He never issued any statement that bad mouthed cops.

He said that they were also trying to intimidate him so he can keep the truth from reaching any other influential people who might take a stand with the protestors too. He said that if they thought that intimidation would work, they were wrong.
