Jamie Foxx calls Spike Lee's 'Django Unchained' comments 'irresponsible'

By Sarah Burbank-Douglas,

Spike Lee caused a firestorm after he slammed Quentin Tarantino’s film, Django Unchained, calling the use the word “N---er” and the portraying of slaves “disrespectful.” Now, Django actor Jamie Foxx is calling Lee out for his statement calling them “irresponsible.”

According to Extra, Foxx spoke to Guardian about Lee’s comments stating, “The question for me is: where's Spike Lee coming from? 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.”

Continuing he adds, “But he gets a little shady when he's taking shots at his colleagues without looking at the work. To me, that's irresponsible."

Lee insisted that he would not see the film before taking to Twitter to continuing slamming the film, “American Slavery Was Not A Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western.It Was A Holocaust.My Ancestors Are Slaves.Stolen From Africa.I Will Honor Them.”

No response yet from Lee on how he feels about Foxx’s “irresponsible” comments.
