Do not accuse Quentin Tarantino of promoting real violence

He will "shut your butt down"

Quentin Tarantino is really sick of being asked if there's a link between his movies and real-world violence. 

In an interview for Britain's Channel 4 News, the "Django Unchained" director got heated after Krishnan Guru-Murthy asked, "Why are you so sure that there's no link between enjoying movie violence and enjoying real violence?"

Tarantino did not like that question one bit, and he was quick to say as much.

"Don't ask me a question like that -- I'm not biting ... I refuse your question ... It's none of your damn business what I think about that!" he shot back.

He went on to say that after answering the same question for 20 years, he's simply tired of talking about it. "The reason I don't want to talk about it is because I've said everything I have to say about it," he explained.

And perhaps the best part?

"I haven't changed my opinion one iota ... and I am shutting your butt down."
