[Movies] Jamie Foxx Says Spike Lee's Django Unchained Criticisms are Shady
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 01.21.2013



Jamie Foxx had some things to say about Spike Lee's criticism of Django Unchained in a recent interview. As you know by now, Lee has attacked Django Unchained for its heavy use of the N-word, saying that he refuses to see the movie because it is disrespectful to his ancestors. Foxx spoke with The Guardian about the film and Spike Lee's reaction.

"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."

Foxx added that history is full of white people telling black stories, noting, "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 'cos he's white or that Elvis Presley isn't a bad motherfucker, or that Quentin Tarantino can't do whatever he likes, 'cos damn straight he can."
