Quentin Tarantino shocked reporters at the Golden Globes last night when he used the N-word while addressing use of the slur throughout his new film Django Unchained , for which he picked up the award for Best Screenplay, according to The Hollywood Reporter . The Best Movies of 2012: 'Django Unchained' "They think I should soften it, that I should lie, that I should massage," Tarantino said, referring to widespread criticism from critics and filmmakers like Spike Lee that has been leveled against him for using the word in his film. But the director said that setting the film in the pre-Civl War era South, as well as his own artistic integrity, kept him from doctoring his script. "I could never do that when it comes to my characters," he said. Tarantino also noted that slavery continues to exist across the globe ("go to Malaysia," he said), and criticized the United States for a legal system that he believes has a bias against African-Americans. "Drug laws put so many black males in jails," he said. "The way private and public prisons trade prisoners back and forth. It's like they are not even hiding it anymore."
