Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" focuses on the story of a slave-turned-bounty-hunter (Foxx) who is freed from servitude and takes a job inflicting fierce revenge across the Deep South while searching for the wife who was separated from him and sold to a brutal plantation-owner. The N-word is used more than 110 times in the film.
“We knew we had to go to a bad place and when I talked to black people about the film and they say they were bothered by the N-word, I said, ‘It’s supposed to, it’s supposed to bother you. Those horrific things that happened to us, is supposed to bother you,’” Foxx told NBC News.
"Django" might not be the sole reason for Williams' rant against Foxx. The "9 Lives" comedian's issues with Foxx date back more than four years, when Foxx instigated an alleged feud between Williams and comedian Steve Harvey.
