PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The union representing Philadelphia’s police officers has joined with police unions in Los Angeles and New York in a call to boycott Academy Award-winning filmmaker Quentin Tarantino.

Union President John McNesby announced Wednesday that the group’s board of directors voted to boycott Tarantino’s works, calling the director “anti-police.”

Nesby says “Tarantino has made a good living through his films, projecting into society at large violence and respect for criminals,” adding it appears he “hates cops.” The announcement coincided with Wednesday’s funeral of Randolph Holder, a New York City officer slain on patrol.

The unions are upset about a Saturday protest in New York against police brutality. Tarantino was among the demonstrators.

A message left with Tarantino’s lawyer seeking comment on the boycott wasn’t immediately returned Thursday.
