Spike Lee Rips D’JANGO says “Movie Is Disrespectful To My Ancestors” – Does this Make you Want to See it More?

ImageSpike Lee says he REFUSES to see Quentin Tarantino‘s new flick, “Django Unchained” when it opens tomorrow … claiming the slavery-revenge movie is “disrespectful to my ancestors.”

Lee first went off on “Django” during an interview with Vibe Magazine … when he was asked for his thoughts on the subject matter and gave the following response:

“I can’t speak on it ’cause I’m not gonna see it … All I’m going to say is that it’s disrespectful to my ancestors. That’s just me … I’m not speaking on behalf of anybody else.”

He later tweeted about the movie — “American Slavery Was Not A Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western.It Was A Holocaust.My Ancestors Are Slaves.Stolen From Africa.I Will Honor Them.” Jamie Foxx and Kerry Washington speak on ….

“Django” — which stars Jamie Foxx as a slave who kills slave-owners in the Deep South — has been drenched in controversy for weeks … with some critics upset that the n-word is uttered more than 110 times during the movie.

Back in 1997,Lee told the media he had problem with Tarantino’s “excessive use of the n-word” in the movie “Jackie Brown.” Lee explained, “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.

Jamie Foxx Calls Obama Our Lord and Savior at the 2012 Soul Train Awards “Causes Furor Among Christians”

In the Church of Jamie Foxx, President Barack Obama might be known as “Our Lord and Savior,” but that doesn’t mean the title bodes well with certain Christian groups. According to the Huffington Post please read what they shared.

Foxx is taking some heat after using the Biblical title for Jesus Christ to describe Obama at the 2012 BET Soul Train Awards.

During the show, Foxx took to the stage to praise Obama when he used the godlike terminology, E! News reports. “It’s like church over here. It’s like church in here. First of all, give an honor to God and our Lord and Savior Barack Obama,” he said to the audience.

E! News notes that the Soul Train Awards aired Sunday night, but was filmed in Las Vegas just days after the president won reelection in November.

Foxx’s comments incited furor in some Christian groups after the show aired on BET.

The president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights in the United States, Bill Donahue, released a statement regarding Foxx’s “Lord and Savior” comment, referring to a 2011 red carpet interview in which the actor said he does not know what God means to him.

“Foxx’s epiphany is startling. It just goes to show that even though Obama did not succeed in stopping the oceans from rising (as he promised to do in 2008), he did succeed in convincing Jamie Foxx, and no doubt legions of others, that God exists,” Donahue writes. “Whether God can survive an ACLU lawsuit accusing him of violating church and state grounds remains to be seen.”

Radio host and Fox News commentator Mary Walter said the “Django Unchained” actor’s reference may root back to reliance on government. “The intellectually superior don’t need the crutch of religion,” she said on Fox News, according to Mediaite. “Those of us clinging to our guns and religion… we’re somehow less evolved. It’s about a societal religion as opposed to a church religion, because if the government gives you everything, the government becomes your religion, and he’s our leader.”

NewsBusters, which also blasted Foxx, has previously criticized Obama-as-God references in the media. The conservative blog chastised Newsweek editor Evan Thomas for saying that Obama is “standing above the country, above above the world, he’s sort of God” during a 2009 interview.
