YMMV: Quentin Tarantino
- Internet Backdraft: In 2015 he made some very controversial comments regarding his opinions on police brutality, essentially calling cops "murderers." This got him on the shit list of many law enforcement agencies, to the point where some are outright boycotting his films and refuse to work as security for him. Furthermore, his own father, Tony Tarantino, called him out for his statements, and in an interview with Fox stated that many of Quentin's own family are police officers who have been injured in the line of duty. He also managed to anger long time friend and film producer Harvey Weinstein, who has helped release many of Tarantino's films.
- What made this even worse was a case of really poor timing, as he made these controversial statements at an anti-police rally in New York only four days after an NYC police officer was killed in the line of duty.
- May be a Subverted Trope, as many on the Internet see a statement by a high-ranking member of a prominent police union as a veiled threat, and Tarantino clarifying his initial statement to make it clear he wasn't talking about all police officers.
