Quentin Tarantino Faces Backlash After Snapping At A Reporter Who Asked Why Margot Robbie's Role Is So Limited In His Latest Film

Quentin Tarantino's newest film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, premiered at the Cannes film festival on Tuesday, May 21.

He and the film's stars also sat down for a press junket, where the director stirred controversy by snapping at a reporter who asked him about Margot Robbie's comparatively small role in the movie.


When asked why Robbie, a massive box-office star, had so few lines in the film compared to her male co-stars Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, Tarantino tersely responded:

"I just reject your hypothesis."


Some Twitter users came to Tarantino's defense, saying "snapped" wasn't an accurate descriptor of his answer.


Others, however, felt the question was a good one and deserved a real answer.

Tarantino fans online made a point of touting the director's former strong female protagonists as evidence of his lack of sexism.



Others pointed out how easy it would have been for Tarantino to simply answer the question instead of placing himself above the issue.

All of the actors onstage with the director knew how to handle the hardball question.




Of course, many people felt they had to argue over whether or not Tarantino's answer qualified as a "snap."



They eventually decided it did.


Meanwhile, Tarantino's new film garnered positive reviews from critics at the festival.



But even if the movie is good, many people are publicly beginning to wonder why Tarantino still deserves Hollywood's support after his past actions.






Once Upon a Time in Hollywood premieres on July 26, which will give many people plenty of time to decide whether or not they want to continue supporting the director's films with their money.
