Sarah Silverman Defends Django Unchained, Use of N-Word

by at . Comments

Sarah Silverman is standing up for the concept of art. And the pervasive use of a certain racial slur. Allow us to explain...

With Spike Lee criticizing director Quentin Tarantino for the abundance of N-Word utterances in Django Unchained (over 110, according to unofficial counts), the female comedian is coming out in defense of the film and wondering:

"Doesn't it take place like during slavery? Wouldn't it be odd if they didn't have that horrific word in it?"

Silverman tells TMZ that she likes Lee, but...

"[Spike's] got a lot of mishegas with a lot of art. I think you can't really tell art what to do."

Movie goers didn't seem to have any misgivings about the film, as Django Unchained broke box office records for an R-rated movie on Christmas day.

Have you seen it? What do you think of its N-Word use? It is...
