Quentin Tarantino lost it in a TV interview, telling an interviewer: “I’m shutting your butt down.”
The Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs director snapped when asked him about the links between film violence and real crime.
Tarantino, 49, yelled: “I refuse your question. I’m not your slave and you’re not my master. You can’t make me dance to your tune. I’m not a monkey.”
Interviewer Krishnan Guru-Murthy was stunned by the response and tried to tell him violence was a “sensitive subject” following a series of shootings in the US.
Tarantino, who was behind classics such as Reservoir Dogs and Inglorious Basterds, told Guru-Murthy: “If anyone cares what I have to say about it, they can Google me and they can look for 20 years what I have to say.
“I haven’t changed my opinion one iota.
“I’m here to sell my movie. This is a commercial for the movie, make no mistake.
“I don’t want to talk about what you want to talk about: the implications of violence.”
When pressed further, he replied: “It’s none of your damn business what I think about that. I am saying no.
“I don’t have any responsibility to you to explain anything I don’t want to.”
The Ocar-= winning director has been promoting his latest hit film Django Unchained.
