LA Protests Police Brutality; "Honorary Black Man" Quentin Tarantino Silent

The social media account for the New Beverly Cinema, owned by Quentin Tarantino, has remained quiet on the subject of George Floyd's murder by police and the ensuing protests against police brutality that have erupted nationwide, including Los Angeles (including the New Beverly's home, Beverly Hills)... until today, when they took the time to post a photo of the vandalized theater following the protests:



With absolutely no mention of supporting the protesters or the BLM movement in their caption, the photo of the "damage" left leaves no question what sort of response they hoped to elicit.

(Like the rest of Beverly Hills, in less than twenty-four hours, it has already been repainted and "repaired".)

In a pleasant surprise, many New Beverly patrons sounded off in the comments, criticizing QT and the staff running his Instagram account for the tonedeaf nature of the post.

Tarantino has yet to speak on the topic. Perhaps he's waiting for Samuel L. Jackson to text back, first.

Are you a rich white man who profits off "homaging" other cultures in your "art" yet stayed silent on the George Floyd protests, ONTD?
