Right? Why do people insist on taking one day in the life of one man, perhaps only a few minutes of this one day, and completely basing their opinion on a person?

I've followed his work for most of my life. He's done some incredible films and he's done some horrible films, I would say the good outweighs the bad.
But the guy comes off as a total narcissist and is constantly strokes himself in interviews. Even before this meltdown he says how he's started a "conversation about slavery" because no one is talking about it, as if no one has EVER talked about it in a serious manner. That's pretty arrogant.
Of course Tarantino will always have zombie fan boys who make excuses for his behavior and his films..

He's probably, like many, sick of hearing the dead argument that media causes violence. The fact that this is even debated and brought up any more is absolutely ridiculous.
That's fine, but his reaction was completely unjustified. "I'm not your slave and you're not my master!" Seriously? The interviewer wasn't "aggressively pushing" the question and was trying to be civil about the whole thing. Anyone who denies that is delusional.
