When Quentin Tarantino decided to join an anti-police brutality protest in New York this weekend, it rattled the city’s police officers, Fox Insider previously reported. Local cops threatened to start a rally of their own – against the director’s new film, “The Hateful Eight.”
Now, the boycott is extending to officers across the country, as police unions in Los Angeles, New Jersey and Philadelphia hop on board.
“We fully support constructive dialogue about how police interact with citizens. But there is no place for inflammatory rhetoric that makes police officers even bigger targets than we already are,” Craig Lally, president of the Los Angeles Police Protective League, said in a statement Tuesday.
