In the latest twist in a bitter fight between police organizations nationwide and director Quentin Tarantino, the executive director on the country’s largest police union reportedly threatened that Tarantino has a “surprise” in store for him.
The AP reports that Jim Pasco of the Fraternal Order of Police made the comment in an interview Thursday with The Hollywood Reporter. The threat comes as police groups have been calling for a boycott of the director’s movies after Tarantino spoke out about police brutality during a protest in New York.
Pasco reportedly told THR that “the element of the surprise is the most important element” in whatever it is that the union has planned for Tarantino.
Pasco reportedly said the action could take place anytime between now and Christmas Day, when Tarantino’s latest film, “The Hateful Eight,” is scheduled to open. Said Pasco: “The time and place will come up and we’ll try to hurt him the only way that seems to matter to him, and that’s economically.”
