Jamie Foxx is firing back at Spike Lee for calling his film Django Unchained disrespectful to his ancestors.
"The question for me is: Where's Spike Lee coming from?" Foxx said to London's The Guardian. "He didn't like Whoopi Goldberg, he doesn't like Tyler Perry, he doesn't like anybody, I think he's sort of run his course. I mean, I respect Spike; he's a fantastic director. But he gets a little shady when he's taking shots at his colleagues without looking at the work. To me, that's irresponsible."
Spike Lee says he does not plan to see Quentin Tarantino's new film Django Unchained because it's disrespectful to his ancestors.
"I'm not gonna see it," the filmmaker told VIBETV. "All I'm going to say is that it's disrespectful to my ancestors to see that film. I can't disrespect my ancestors. That's just me. ... I'm not speaking on behalf of anybody else.
