Making the media rounds in the U.K. to promote Django Unchained, which like the rest of his body of work features loads of gunplay, dead bodies and cringe-inducing scenes of bloody violence, the filmmaker angrily shut down an interviewer's attempts to get him to comment on the subject, which is in the news again following the Newtown shooting.
The somewhat bizarre outburst was sparked when Channel 4's Krishnan Guru-Murthy asked him why he's "so sure there is no link between enjoying movie violence and enjoying real violence."
"I'm gonna tell you why I'm so sure? Don't ask me a question like that. I'm not biting. I refuse your question," fumed Tarantino.
