In reaction to filmmaker Quentin Tarantino’s remarks about police brutality and “white supremacy in this country,” Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. said Tarantino is a “fraud” and does “not share black experiences from” his “elitist lifestyle.”

At an Oct. 24 rally in New York City organized by a group called #RiseUpOctober, Tarantino, the director of “Pulp Fiction” and “Django Unchained,” spoke from a stage, saying, “When I see murder, I cannot stand by, and I have to call the murdered the murdered and I have to call the murderers the murderers.”

On MSNBC’s “All In With Chris Hayes” on Nov. 4, Tarantino further said that he thinks “this issue” – police brutality -- is, “ultimately what I feel is a problem of white supremacy in this country.”

Tarantino also criticized Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. on the program, stating that “Clarke, who is on Fox all the time, says that I’m putting police in danger by standing up for the rights of unarmed citizens who have been killed by the police.”

After Tarantino’s appearance on MSNBC, Sheriff Clarke tweeted, “I never mentioned his name on Fox. This 1%er was stamping his credibility card that he is down with the struggle.”

A few minutes later, Clarke tweeted about Tarantino, “You are a fraud. You do NOT share black experiences from your elitist lifestyle. Honor thy father.”

Quentin Tarantino’s father, actor Tony Tarantino, has condemned his son’s remarks about police officers, saying “he is dead wrong” about the issue.

Sheriff Clarke also tweeted that he would like MSNBC to grant him a 12-minute interview so he could refute Tarantino’s comments about the police.
