Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie clarifies incident where Quentin Tarantino bit her on the set of Planet Terror
Old footage resurfaced and people were quick to criticise the director.
Over the last few weeks, various reports have emerged that questioned Quentin Tarantino's behaviour on set. To begin with, Uma Thurman gave an interview with the New York Times about the crash that happened while she was filming Kill Bill. She said: "Quentin and I had an enormous fight, and I accused him of trying to kill me."
After that interview was released, Thurman elaborated on the details of the crash by posting footage of the incident. The actress said that the decision to film that scene was "negligent to the point of criminality" but stressed that she does "not believe (it was done) though with malicious intent."
Since the footage resurfaced, Tarantino has said that the incident was: "Beyond one of the biggest regrets of my career, it is one of the biggest regrets of my life."
Diane Kruger has also been speaking about her experiences of working with Tarantino. The star of Troy and Inglourious Basterds said that her time working "with Quentin Tarantino was pure joy. He treated me with utter respect and never abused his power or forced me to do anything I wasn’t comfortable with."
The most recent allegation about Tarantino revolves around the production of Planet Terror where Tarantino made a cameo as a zombie.
As you can see in the footage below, the director of Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown proceeded to 'bite' Fergie.
"Quentin fucking bit me and by the end of this shoot, I'm going to bit him back," she jokingly said.

Speaking with ET's Katie Krause, Fergie dismissed any serious overtones of the 'biting' story and said that the whole incident is being taken out of context.
She said: "First off, I stand with victims everywhere no matter what genre, race, gender, age. I stand with victims period, and I don't want to take away from anyone's story. That just wasn't my story."
Fergie also said that her dealings with Tarantino - as seen in the Planet Terror footage - don’t have any place in the broader conversation about the various sexual abuse scandals within Hollywood.
"We were just kind of having banter. We were having a little bit of fun. But make no mistake, I don't want to take away from anyone's story, and I stand with every victim and everyone's story everywhere," she said.
