Tarantino is in hot water for comments he made defending Roman Polanski (yikes, what a disgusting pig), but Jessica Chastain complaining that Uma Thurman who volunteered to be in Kill Bill was ‘abused’ is just silly and ultimately takes away from the very real issue of sexual assault.
Let’s just hope Jessica is even more outraged about Tarantino’s vile comments about Polanski but for this piece, we have this tweet:
I keep imagining Tarantino spitting in Uma's face and strangling her with a chain for KILL BILL. How many images of women in media do we celebrate that showcase abuse? When did this become normalized 'entertainment'?

Umm … what?
Is Jessica saying women can’t handle being in violent movies? Perhaps she missed it, but Uma is the heroine in Kill Bill and kicks all sorts of ass. Not to mention men are ‘abused’ in movies every day.
We thought the big push was for women to be equal?
This is ridiculous… men are subjected to the same. Plz stop victimizing women and making them seem weak. https://t.co/SmW0PN4gDB

It is Hollywood we’re talking about so yes, yes it IS ridiculous.
Yeah I'm not a weak bitch and I can fucking handle it. Stop speaking for all women like you know them. I can't stand this shit you want to be equal but also demand that everyone protect your fragile feelings ..fuck that. These celebs are so out of touch with reality lol

Remind us NEVER to tick these ladies off.
And last I checked uma Thurman came back stronger than ever and killed him. Nice try Jess.

If uma didn't want the job, she would have told him to F*** himself and walked away. But she did

Feminists can’t have it both ways. They can’t complain that women aren’t paid as much or don’t get the same opportunities as men and then turn around and whine about when they’re treated like men.
Either women can handle it or they can’t.
This ain’t rocket science.
