Did Django need to shoot Lara Lee? Wasn't she innocent?
The following is from the FAQ section for this movie:
"Did Django need to shoot Lara Lee? Wasn't she innocent?
Calvin Candie's sister, Lara Lee was far from innocent. She lived on a plantation and clearly had no issues with how her brother brutalized his slaves and likely had a say in how they were punished as well. She constantly held up her nose above the black race, viewing them as nothing more than inferior, sub-human animals. She also had no hang-ups about prostituting her slaves to her guests, given how she dragged Broomhilda up to Dr. Schultz's room. While some might bring up as proof of Lara's righteousness when Stephen and Calvin show off Broomhilda's whipped back and Lara chastises them, it's actually due to her eating dinner and not wanting to be repulsed by looking at mutilated skin. At the end of the film, she was the one who originally wanted to have Django castrated, but changed her mind and decided to sell Django to the LeQuint Dickey Mining Company for a slow, brutal, agonizing death, after Stephen subtly suggests it. Not to mention, Lara Lee was making Broomhilda into a "comfort girl" for both the Mandingos and the slave wranglers. Despite the fact that Django really didn't "need" to shoot Lara Lee, as she was unarmed and posed no imminent threat to him, it's understandable as to why he'd want to take revenge on her. In fact, people could even agree that Lara was taken out the easiest, quickest and cleanest way by Django compared to most of the other villains of the film. For example, Django is shown gunning down Billy Crash multiple times and leaves him suffering and wailing a few moments before finally shooting him dead; Django also violently shoots the elderly Stephen in both of his kneecaps before casually walking out of the Big House, leaving the old man screaming in agonizing pain for several long minutes until the plantation blows up."
Whoever wrote this is sick. Shooting an unarmed woman who has committed no capital crimes and is just a dumb bitch is disgusting. I really hated this aspect of the film and wish it had not happened. I have other issues with this film but this issue is the most glaring one of all. Clearly the person who wrote that FAQ has been hypnotized into thinking that violence against women is OK if that woman was dumb. Personally, I would shoot the person who wrote this crap for being a sick freak who encourages violence against women.
