It doesn't take much for these guys to turn on a woman, even their own mother who has otherwise given them a great life, and considering the misogynist that he became doesn't take much for them to turn on all women either. Go listen to this little shit publicly berate his mother for a minor comment she said in anger 50 years ago.

Meanwhile he’s never met his daddy someone who he should really be mad at. 🙄

So he was goofing off in class, not following the teacher's directions, and she called him out on it -- and he still resents her for it?

I mean, I get it. She was harsh. And in a perfect world, she'd have had the flexibility and ability to be able to support him following his dreams wherever they took him. But this world isn't that world. We live in a world where kids are expected to follow instructions, do what they're told, and follow the curriculum. Had she allowed him to simply follow his dreams and they'd not panned out, she'd have been lambasted for that, too, and blamed for his failure.

But, of course, he has no idea about that because he's an extremely privileged male who's likely never listened to a woman's voice a day in his life.

I guess harsh is relative, to me after what I had to deal with this is nothing but even from his point of view, it was one thing she said in anger, no doubt while he was being his little shitstain self and like you said jacking off at school and getting her in trouble for that. Like you said parents aren't allowed to let their kids do whatever they want, many of them wish they could because the system is essentially a failure.

Regardless, the fact that he's held on to this one comment for fifty years and has continually punished her for it, and now he's publicly humiliating her and enjoying waving money in her face is just sick. From all other accounts it sounds like she was a good mother. Quentin Tarantino is a disgusting person but we all already knew that. Tormenting his own mother in this way is just a new low.

She was an amazing woman who got enampicated at sixteen to go to college and married a man to enable her to move to California, who then lied about being sterlized in order to get her pregnant, the last thing she wanted so rape by deception with Quentin, she was livid and divorced that bastard and raised Quentin on her own when his father would have nothing to do with him...

How about a thank you mom?

Even if it was a strained relationship all Quentin had to say publicly was that she did the best she could and now she is proud of him. That's a better anecdote then holding a vengeful grudge and denigrating his own mother.

THIS!

If he had failed out of school and never made it in Hollywood, he would currently be cursing his mother for not pushing him in academics while he wanks to porn in her basement and eats her food

What makes you think he’s telling the truth about his mother? I think he’s lying.

He may or may not be. I know that moms all have their breaking points, and it's entirely possible she lost her patience with him and told him off a time or two. Kids are known for finding their moms' very last nerve and then playing with it like the little springs behind doors.

Anyway, long story short, he could be telling the truth as he remembers it, he could be exaggerating for effect, or he could be flat-out lying. I have no way of knowing. But regardless, I still think he's being a childish ass for his behavior both then and now. His mom was trying to push him to be his best, and instead of understanding where she was coming from and trying to meet her halfway, he just shat all over her both privately and publicly.

Oh, Quentin. Your kid is 1. Talk to us when he’s a teen, you ungrateful prick.

No, he's going to leave all the parenting heavy lifting to the mom, as men do, and will be completely and utterly clueless about any challenges she experiences.

No, he's going to leave all the parenting heavy lifting to the mom, as men do, and will be completely and utterly clueless about any challenges she experiences.

And when he inevitably leaves his wife for some barely-legal fangirl, he'll spin that as being his mother's and/or his wife's fault as well

"Regarding my son Quentin – I support him, I'm proud of him and love him and his growing new family," she said. "It gave me great joy to dance at his wedding and receive his news upon the birth of my Grandson Leo."

Zastoupil added that it's easy for podcast comments to "spin and go viral without full context" and that she does "not wish to participate in this salacious transactional media frenzy."

Wow, his comment already sounded petty and childish on its own, but seeing her response in conjunction with it really shows who is the bigger person here. Quentin Tarantino is a pathetic misogynist who clearly doesn't deserve to have the mother he got, or the money he made by exploiting women. I can't imagine being so rich and using my wealth against someone for a statement they made DECADES ago that, while harsh, at least had good intentions.

I can't even believe how out-of-touch he is to brag about that. Is his response really proportionate to her comment? Surely most people would agree it's kind of sick...? At least they would if the sexes were reversed.

This is exactly what I thought too. Also, sorry to everyone here that’s a parent but this shouldn’t be news to you, every parent fucks up every kid in some way or another. It’s the unfortunate truth in a universe where we are raised by fallible human beings. Every parent will say or do something they wish they could take back, every parent will make a mistake so big their kid won’t forget it, and every parent is deeply flawed. Most of us grow up, recognize our parents are humans, forgive their slights against us while doing the difficult task of raising us, and move on. You know who holds grudges against their parents for their (minor in this case) parenting mistakes? Angsty teenagers.

While I will say that Quentin Tarantino doesn’t owe his parents money for choosing to be parents, the least he could do is show his mother a fraction of the grace she’s showing him right now and get her a nice gift and forgive her.

Edit: and thank her for being such a lovely mother that her biggest mistake was losing her patience and saying something regrettable. There are parents who have subjected their children to far far worse, and if that’s her biggest mistake, he was very lucky indeed. My own mother, who I love deeply, made much worse mistakes. I’m not an ingrate so it’s fine ahah

The article mentions he helped his mom out of a tight spot with the IRS, so that’s something.

And that is nice, but to me it’s kind of the bare minimum. I know statistically my parents will die in my lifetime, I wouldn’t have my mother go to her grave knowing that not only did I do very little to help her, but that I didn’t want to help her because of some childhood grudge. I certainly wouldn’t announce my grudge to the world and her, and reveal her money issues. It doesn’t paint him in a very positive light to be like “I have more money than someone could spend in a lifetime and my mom couldn’t pay her taxes so I kindly helped her out.” Come on dude, we don’t get our moms forever, if he wants to hold onto that crap and never help her out, fine, but the least he could do is not announce it to the world like he’s proud of it.

I can't even believe how out-of-touch he is to brag about that. Is his response really proportionate to her comment? Surely most people would agree it's kind of sick...?

Even if his mother was an abusive monster, the sight of a grown man publicly saying, "Fuck you, Mom! You don't get my money!!" is pathetic. No one cares and nobody thinks its brave

At least they would if the sexes were reversed.

They did. Joan Crawford's daughter still gets shit from her mother's fans for talking about the insane abuse she faced

The lack of self awareness you must have to say this and not realize how petty and entitled you sound, my god...

Misogynists, serial killers, domestic abusers, rapists, all have mommy issues, and it is usually that she pissed him off by telling him off when he was a teenager and he never got over it.

So true. They see their mothers in every woman and take out their anger on them because they can’t stand having been put in their place by a lowly woman.

Uma Thurman was forced to do her own stunt in Kill Bill, she almost died. Harvey Weinstein was involved in those movies as well.

I'll admit - I didn't like Kill Bill, only movie of his I thought was ok was "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood". But reading that made my blood boil.

“Quentin finally atoned by giving it* to me after 15 years, right?” she says. “Not that it matters now, with my permanently damaged neck and my screwed-up knees.” (*Video of the accident).

Seriously? That’s quite a level of petty.

Quite believable though. My brother was the favoured child who got what he wanted and treated well. For the past ten years he’s had nothing to do with our mother, even when she’s been seriously ill in hospital.

He sounds like such a little shit. I'm sure if we could go back in time to that conversation we'd all be on her side.

oh shut up quentin, stop whining and film some more feet

really tho, my mother has said things 1000 times worse to me and I'm only in my 20s not over 50, and I wouldn't complain about the past in an interview. get over it

You expected anything else from a creep who shoves his foot fetish in all his movies?
