Chris Hayes will interview Quentin Tarantino on his MSNBC show on Wednesday, to talk about the comments he has made on police brutality. All In With Chris Hayes confirmed the news on their Twitter account.
Tarantino’s appearance on the show will be his first television interview about the police boycott of his films in the wake of his comments about police violence and his participation in protests.

The controversy began on Oct. 24 when Tarantino spoke out at a rally in New York. “When I see murders, I do not stand by. … I have to call a murder a murder, and I have to call the murderers the murderers,” he said.
Police departments and law enforcement groups across the country responded by announcing they are boycotting Tarantino’s films, in particular his upcoming film The Hateful Eight.
“All cops are not murderers. I never said that. I never even implied that,” Tarantino told the Los Angeles Times in a recent interview.
“Instead of dealing with the incidents of police brutality that those people were bringing up, instead of examining the problem of police brutality in this country, better they single me out,” the director said. “And their message is very clear. It’s to shut me down. It’s to discredit me. It is to intimidate me. It is to shut my mouth, and even more important than that, it is to send a message out to any other prominent person that might feel the need to join that side of the argument.”
