The head of the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association (PBA) has called for a boycott of Quentin Tarantino's movies after the controversial director spoke at an anti-police rally in New York City.
Tarantino spoke at the rally and referred to many officers as "murderers."
"It’s no surprise that someone who makes a living glorifying crime and violence is a cop-hater, too," said Patrick Lynch, president of the PBA.
At the rally, which took place just two days after NYPD Officer Randolph Holder was gunned down by a robbery suspect in East Harlem, protestors marched and chanted against police violence, holding up signs that read, "Rise Up! Stop Police Terror!"
Tarantino spoke at the rally, generating a buzz by stating, "When I see murders, I do not stand by . . . I have to call a murder a murder and I have to call the murderers the murderers."
Although not apologizing for his comments or participation at the rally, Tarantino said that the timing of the rally was "unfortunate" given its proximity to Officer Holder's death.
