Donald Trump on why 'Django Unchained' is racist

By Robert Kirchgassner ,

Superstar businessman Donald Trump recently explained why he views Quentin Tarantino’s recent film, Django Unchained, as racist.

"I thought it was totally racist. I thought it wasn't a good movie. I've never seen so many people get hit by a bullet and explode. It was like they got hit by bombs," he told Access Hollywood Wednesday.

Although Trump quickly added that he has nothing against Tarantino, who won an Oscar for writing the film at Sunday’s Academy Awards. In addition, Christoph Waltz won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in Django.

"'Pulp Fiction,' to me, is one of the greatest movies ever. I like him, I just didn't particularly like this movie,” Trump said.

According to Eurweb, Trump also voiced his criticisms about Django on the Fox News morning show Fox & Friends.

The film, a western set before the Civil War, stars Jamie Foxx as the title character who joins forces with a bounty hunter (Waltz) to rescue his wife (Kerry Washington) from a plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio).

He also aimed criticisms at the Oscar ceremony itself and at Daniel Day-Lewis, who won Best Actor for his performance in the title role in Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln.

"He spoke so slowly that I fell asleep... I didn't think his performance was good," Trump said.
