The Association of Orange County Deputy Sheriffs has joined the boycott of Quentin Tarantino‘s upcoming movie “The Hateful Eight.”
The group, in conjunction with the Fraternal Order of Police, released a statement railing against Tarantino and calling for members to boycott his film.
“For a man who has built his career on glorifying criminal violence, we take great offense to his recent comments calling law enforcement officers ‘murderers’ just days after an actual murder of a New York City Police Officer,” the FOP said in a statement.
The Orange County Deputy Sheriffs joined the New York Police Department and the Los Angeles Police Department’s largest union in boycotting Tarantino’s film.
And on Monday, the National Border Patrol Council joined the boycott, ripping Tarantino’s “hateful words.”
“We stand strongly in support of our brothers and sisters in uniform who have called for a boycott of Tarantino movies,” said NBPC president Brandon Judd.
“His hateful words, spoken just four days after a NYPD officer was gunned down in East Harlem, will only embolden those who would do harm to police officers. Aren’t we a big enough target already?”
