Due to its controversial content, not everyone has found the Oscar nominated film "Django Unchained" to be such a masterful piece of film. No one has railed against it more than director Spike Lee, but Jamie Foxx has decided to give Spike a piece of his mind. From Foxx's perspective, Lee has a history of bad-mouthing Black actors and directors.
"The question for me is: where's Spike Lee coming from?" said Foxx. "He didn't like Whoopi Goldberg, he doesn't like Tyler Perry, he doesn't like anybody, I think he's sort of run his course. I mean, I respect Spike, he's a fantastic director. But he gets a little shady when he's taking shots at his colleagues without looking at the work. To me, that's irresponsible."
One gripe that Lee seems to have with Tarantino is his propensity to use black culture in his films. Foxx pointed out that many white entertainers have used black culture in an effective and responsible way.
"Besides, the history of entertainment is littered with white guys who told black stories, and white singers who sang black songs. Sometimes that's good and sometimes it's bad. But you got to look at the individual cases. When Pat Boone covered Little Richard, you think, 'Huh?', he's got no affinity for it. Good Golly Miss Molly? I don't think so. But you can't tell me that Eminem ain't hot 'cause he's white or that Elvis Presley isn't a bad motherf***er, or that Quentin Taratino can't do whatever he likes, 'cause damn straight he can."
