“I knew enough to do more than I did,” Tarantino said in an interview with The New York Times published Thursday. “There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things.”

Apatow reacted immediately on Twitter in response to his fellow director’s interview with The Times.

“Knew enough since Clinton was President and MC Hammer was selling millions of records. That’s a lot of years to not confront a friend,” Apatow wrote. (RELATED: Tarantino Admits He Knew Of Weinstein’s Behavior With Women For Decades)

Although Tarantino claimed he did confront Weinstein on one occasion, he admitted to dismissing other rumors and stories while he continued to work with the disgraced Hollywood executive for decades.

“I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard,” he told The Times. “If I had done the work I should have done then, I would have had to not work with him.”
