The critically acclaimed film, Django Unchained, has also brought with it a little bit of controversy. The film takes place in the South two years before the beginning of the Civil War. With a setting like that, the 'N' word is used very often throughout the film. During an interview with the cast this point was brought up to Samuel L. Jackson. His response was to try to get the white interviewer to actually say the word as opposed to calling it "the 'N' word."
