Hackers give Quentin Tarantino a "but" apology
by Nathan'ette Burdine: January 11, 2016

After publishing Quentin Tarantino’s film The Hateful Eight on the internet, the hacker group Hive-CM8 gave Tarantino a “but” apology.

A “but” apology is an apology whereby someone apologizes and expects something in return for his apology.

The return that Hive-CM8 wants from Tarantino is a “thank you” for “accidently” publishing The Hateful Eight and making it available to a wider audience who would have otherwise not gone to the theatre to watch the movie.

Business Insider published Hive-CM8’s full apology. The part of the apology pertaining to Tarantino reads as follows, “As for Hateful Eight Movie: We feel sorry for the trouble we caused by releasing that great movie before cinedate even has begun. we never intended to hurt anyone by doing that, we didnt know it would get that popular that quickly.”

Translation, our bad, we thought we were publishing a bad movie. If we had known otherwise, we never would have done what we did.

The apology continues with the group praising Tarantino for entertaining them with such a good movie.

Hive-CM8 said that they enjoyed everything from the dialogue, action, music, to the scenery.

In fact, The Hateful Eight was so good that the hacker group says the movie deserves a high honor like the Oscars.

Hive-CM8 also wants everyone to know that the fanfare surrounding the movie and return on investment that Tarantino will receive would not have been possible without them.

Business Insider quoted the group as saying, “Since everyone is now talking about this movie we dont think the producers will loose any money at cinedate, and we tell you now why…If lets say 5% of the people planned to watch this movie at cinemadate, due to this media push we unintentionally created, we believe that now 40% of the people will watch this movie in cinema.”

So yes, the hacker group wants a pat on the back for “unintentionally” marketing Quentin Tarantino’s movie, The Hateful Eight.

Or, as they say, “cause everyone is talking about it and everyone wants to see the movie that created so much noise. this will push the cinema tickets sale for sure.”
