Ava DuVernay responds to Quentin Tarantino in the best way

You all might remember Quentin Tarantino’s snide comments about Selma in the New York Times T Magazine,

“She did a really good job on Selma but Selma deserved an Emmy.”

He made things worse a few days later by admitting he hadn’t even seen Selma. This from a guy who repeats the N-word in his movies like a 3 year old who just learned a new word.

Like a lot of people I had been wondering if Ava DuVernay had seen those comments and how she felt about it. If you were like me, wonder no more, Ava has spoken and it’s perfect.

“I was surprised by how surprised everyone was. When you look at his work and his persona, there’s nothing surprising about what he said,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “But it didn’t bother me like so many assumed it would.”

In other words: we all know he’s dick, so why is everyone surprised by him being acting like a dick and why should I care he’s a dick? Stand aside, the adults are talking here! #TeamAva
