“The Hateful Eight” director will serve as the mid-show interview guest on the Friday, Nov. 6 episode of the talk show. Keith Olbermann, journalist David Frum, reporter Jillian Melchior and former New York congressman Anthony Weiner will also serve as guests on the episode.
The director has recently found himself at the center of a controversy after saying that some police officers are “murderers” during a rally protesting police brutality. “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.”
Following calls for officers to boycott his upcoming Christmas release by police unions across the country, the director walked back his comments in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.
“”All cops are not murderers,” he said. “I never said that. I never even implied that.”
