Luther Campbell Slams Spike Lee as "Scheming Uncle Tom"

by at . Comments

Quentin Tarantino, Luther Campbell has got your back.

With controversy continuing to swirl around those Django Unchained quotes that contain a certain n-word, the 2 Live Crew penned a column this week in The Miami New Times that calls out one of the director's harshest critics. Big time.

"Screw Spike Lee," Campbell writes of the man who blasted this film for disrespecting his ancestors. "Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained is a brilliant flick that more accurately depicts the African-American experience than any of the 15 movies about black culture Lee's directed in his lifetime."

Ouch. But it only cuts deeper from there.

Campbell refers to Tarantino as "one of Tinseltown's most clever directors" and tells Lee to "get over himself," while saving his most brutal insult for last:

"Spike is upset because Samuel L. Jackson's character in the movie is just like him: a conniving and scheming Uncle Tom."

Django Unchained is up for five Oscars and Tarantino won the Golden Globe Award for Best Screenplay this week, so we doubt he minds whatever controversy his movie has stirred up.

But we doubt he minds Campbell coming to his defense, either.
