Moviemaker Antoine Fuqua has stepped up and come to the defense of fellow director Quentin Tarantino's new Django Unchained box office hit amid dicey remarks from Spike Lee over its controversial N-word usage.

Although he can respect Spike's stance, Fuqua said the renowned Hollywood director chose the wrong way to get his point across.

"That's just not the way you do things," said Fuqua, speaking on the sidelines of the 17th Capri, Hollywood Film Festival. "If you disagree with the way a colleague did something, call him up, invite him out for a coffee, talk about it. But don't do it publicly." "I don't think Quentin Tarantino has a racist bone in his body," he said. "Besides, I'm good friends with [Django Unchained star] Jamie Foxx and he wouldn't have anything to do with a film that had anything racist to it." (The Hollywood Reporter)
The Training Day director also said the movie's context supported Tarantino's usage of the controversial word.

Fuqua continued: "I haven't seen the film, so I can't speak about it specifically, but we're supposed to find some truth in films and if you set a film in the 1850s, you're going to hear the word 'n****r,' because that's the way they spoke then, and you're going to discuss slavery because that was part of the reality," he said. "I want my kids to hear those kinds of words in the right context, so that they'll know that language is not OK," Fuqua said. (The Hollywood Reporter)

So... he goes ahead and ignores his own advice? Isn't he calling out Spike Lee out publicly right now?
