JAMEELA CALLS OUT QUENTIN OVER EMILE HIRSCH>>

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - Live - - FRONT PAGE -

The Good Place star Jameela Jamil has blasted film­maker Quentin Tarantino for cast­ing Emile Hirsch in Once Upon a Time in Hol­ly­wood, his am­bi­tious project on the Man­son Mur­ders, a mere two years af­ter the Into The Wild (2007) ac­tor pleaded guilty to mis­de­meanour as­sault on a fe­male movie ex­ec­u­tive.

Hirsch was sen­tenced to 15 days in jail for chok­ing ex­ec­u­tive Daniele Bern­feld, and fined $4,750 and 50 hours of com­mu­nity service. Jamil la­belled the cast­ing as an “in­tense case of rich white male” priv­i­lege.

“Cool. Emile Hirsch stran­gled my tiny fe­male best friend un­til she blacked out at a party in front of dozens of wit­nesses at Sun­dance Film Fes­ti­val (and was con­victed) but Tarantino just cast him in a movie,” Jamil tweeted along­side a cast­ing an­nounce­ment for the upcoming film, fol­lowed by a middle fin­ger emoji. “Left her with three years of PTSD and never paid for her treat­ment, and still hasn’t apol­o­gised to her. Not to­day Satan, not to­day,” she added.

Jamil also called out Hirsch for not apol­o­gis­ing, along with the rest of those in­volved in Tarantino’s upcoming film based on the Man­son Fam­ily mur­ders. The film also stars Al Pa­cino, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Damian Lewis.

“Emile Hirsch has not apol­o­gised for this heinous crime. But is re-join­ing Hol­ly­wood’s elite. Slow clap to ev­ery­one in­volved in this movie. So many other ac­tors who haven’t at­tacked women to choose from,” a dis­pleased Jamil wrote.
