Don't expect Spike Lee to be in the audience when "Django Unchained" hits theaters on Christmas Day. The "She's Gotta Have It" filmmaker is not going to see it, and took time out to bash the flick on Twitter, after slamming it in an interview with Vibe Magazine.
But that actually wasn't all he was going to say.
Lee went on to give his take on the slavery flick's subject matter on Twitter Saturday.
"American Slavery Was Not A Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western. It Was A Holocaust.My Ancestors Are Slaves. Stolen From Africa. I Will Honor Them," Lee wrote.
When "Jackie Brown" was released in 1997, Lee said, "I have a definite problem with Quentin Tarantino's excessive use of the n-word. And let the record state that I never said that he cannot use that word--I've used that word in many of my films--but I think something is wrong with him," according to the Hollywood Reporter.
So much for the Christmas spirit.
