Quentin Tarantino, who drew the ire of police unions for participating in anti-brutality protests (ugh, what a monster), doesn't have to worry about massive police protests anymore, if he was ever worried in the first place. As per the Wrap, New York Patrolman’s Benevolent Association spokesperson Albert O’Leary said, "We’re not giving this guy anymore free publicity. We have nothing to say about it.” After making ominous threats that made them sound uncomfortably akin to comic-book villains, maybe the police unions realized they had better things to do then stage boycotts of a movie about racist cowboys.
