Police union threatens 'surprise' for Quentin Tarantino
NEW YORK - The executive director of the largest police union in the country has threatened a "surprise" for Quentin Tarantino after the director drew its ire for comments about police brutality.
Jim Pasco of the Fraternal Order of Police told the Hollywood Reporter on Thursday that the union has something planned for Tarantino and that "the element of the surprise is the most important element." Pasco said the union will "try to hurt him the only way that seems to matter to him, and that's economically."
Tarantino said at an October rally against police brutality that he's "on the side of the murdered." He has since said he's not "anti-police" and claimed he's being demonized.
Numerous police groups have said they'll boycott Tarantino's upcoming film, "The Hateful Eight."
