The Wrap spoke with crisis experts regarding Quentin Tarantino’s inflammatory statements at a recent rally protesting police brutality. Susan Tellem, who heads the crisis management division here at TGPR, was featured along with other experts; the responses were a bit mixed actually. Did Quentin handle this appropriately? Probably not. Will the backlash hurt the box office release of his western “The Hateful Eight”? Probably not. It’s a good read and offers great tips for every PR practitioner who may be faced with a crisis of their own one day (such as: don’t wait too long to respond or offer too much detail or explanation in your follow up statement or interview).
