“ The lady wanted to have it, ” the “ The Hateful Eight” creator stated of Polanski’ s victim within the clip below.

“ He didn’ t rape a 13-year-old, ” Tarantino told Stern. “ It had been statutory rape. That’ s less than the same thing…. He had sex with a small, all right. That’ s not rape. To me, when you use the word rape, you’ re talking about violent, throwing all of them down. ”

Tarantino added: “ Throwing the term ‘ rape’ around is like tossing the word ‘ racist’ around. This doesn’ t apply to everything that individuals use it for. ”

When stereo co-host Robin Quivers said the woman didn’ t want to have sex, Quentin tarantino countered: “ She wanted to get it. ”
