JAMEELA CALLS OUT QUENTIN OVER EMILE HIRSCH>>
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.
