Two more organisations representing police forces in the U.S. have joined the NYPD union’s call for a boycott on Quentin Tarantino’s movies, after the director was heavily criticising for attending an anti-police violence rally and describing some officers as “murderers”.

Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association in New York which represents the NYPD, first floated the idea of a general boycott of the director’s films early this week, after Tarantino made the comments in New York less than a week after an officer was gunned down in the line of duty. That call now seems to be gaining support, with two more forces supporting it this week.

John McNesby of the Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5 said on Thursday that the organisation had voted unanimously to join in the protest, and the Los Angeles Police Protective League has also backed the plan.

“Tarantino has shown through his actions that he is anti-police,” McNesby said in a statement explaining his organisation’s stance. “Mr Tarantino has made a good living through his films, projecting into society at large violence and respect for criminals; it turns out he also hates cops.”

The 52 year old director had attended three days of protests in New York City last weekend, organised by Rise Up October, a group opposing police violence and which seeks to highlight what it calls a “genocidal assault on black and Latino people in this country”.

Other sections of the media have also joined in with voices of disapproval for Tarantino’s remarks, with the conservative pundit Bill O’Reilly saying that he had “destroyed his career”.

Tarantino’s new movie The Hateful Eight is released in the U.S. on Christmas Day, and it is this film that the campaign hopes to target. The director himself has not made any statements on the boycott to date.
