Quentin Tarantino Makes Weird 'Ghetto' Joke at Golden Globes

Thankfully, Jamie Foxx calls out the director.

And we thought Ricky Gervais was going to be the one to piss people off with his rude jokes.
At tonight's Golden Globe Awards, however, that honor goes to Quentin Tarantino. While accepting the award for Best Original Score on behalf of his Hateful Eight collaborator Ennio Morricone, Tarantino referred to movie composers as "that ghetto" and compared his frequent collaborator to the classical music icons like Beethoven and Mozart.
Um, excuse us, Mr. Tarantino?
Jamie Foxx, who was presenting the award, caught the awkward moment and muttered "ghetto" under his breath as Tarantino walked off stage. Twitter, of course, is not having Tarantino's ad-lib moment. Read some of the shady tweets directed at the filmmaker, below:

The backlash will not be cute, and we can already think of one person who will probably have a lot to say about Quentin's comments. Watch the video below to hear what Spike Lee thinks of his fellow filmmaker: is your No. 1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
