Quentin Tarantino will appear on MSNBC’s “All In With Chris Hayes” on Wednesday night to discuss the police boycott of his films following the director’s comments about police violence.

The network made the announcement via Twitter.

This will mark Tarantino’s first televised interview about the controversy.

Last week, the National Association of Police Organizations joined a boycott of Tarantino’s upcoming film “The Hateful Eight” after Tarantino referred to officers as “murderers.”

Tarantino later clarified his statements in an interview with the Los Angeles Times. “All cops are not murderers,” Tarantino told the Times. “I never said that. I never even implied that.”

He added, “What they’re doing is pretty obvious. Instead of dealing with the incidents of police brutality that those people were bringing up, instead of examining the problem of police brutality in this country, better they single me out. And their message is very clear. It’s to shut me down. It’s to discredit me. It is to intimidate me. It is to shut my mouth, and even more important than that, it is to send a message out to any other prominent person that might feel the need to join that side of the argument.”

Tarantino’s “All In With Chris Hayes” appearance airs at 8 p.m. Wednesday on MSNBC.
