When Uma Thurman went public with her experience of abuse at the hands of Harvey Weinstein, fans were there for her to offer support and praise for sharing her story.

However, legions were shocked when they heard Thurman claim that director and former friend to the actress, Quentin Tarantino, had placed her into a dangerous situation that ultimately left her permanently injured.

Thurman went into detail about her personal struggle to continue in the industry after the disgraced Weinstein attempted to force himself on her in his hotel room, and having to keep working alongside him.

She also described how Tarantino pressured her to drive an older car down a sandy road saying they needed her to get the shot, despite her objections. The car spun out and she hit a tree, leaving her with a concussion, damaged knees, and a neck injury that persists to this day.

Thurman said in her New York Times interview that while the sexual assault was terrible, it isn't the same as fearing for her life.

"Harvey assaulted me but that didn’t kill me,” she said. “What really got me about the crash was that it was a cheap shot. I had been through so many rings of fire by that point."

Now, Tarantino has broken his silence on her accusations in an emotional appeal.

Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining.

Watching movies was the ultimate treat on a weekend. Our parents would let us help them pick out the best movies possible at Blockbuster and we would watch it all together. But as we got older, we didn't want to just rent whatever cartoon had come out that week. We wanted to watch something new and exciting. We wanted our parents to think of us as young adults now.
