Or he could apologise or he could say "I don't really know what Bruce Lee was like".

Before the Pulp Fiction director's ninth film hit theaters this July, Lee's daughter Shannon voiced her displeasure in Tarantino including her father in the movie without first reaching out to her.

Shannon Lee, speaking with Variety Thursday, questioned Tarantino's blurring of fiction and fact, as the retro film is centered around two fictional characters - Pitt's Booth and Leonardo DiCaprio's Rick Dalton - along with real people such as Lee, Sharon Tate and Roman Polanski.

Tarantino recently responded by insisting that he drew the dialogue for his Bruce Lee from sources like Lee's wife's biography, and that he "heard [Lee] say things like that, to that effect".

The 56-year-old director made his comment during a press conference in Moscow, Russia where he stated that "Bruce Lee was kind of an arrogant guy". The way he was talking, I didn't just make a lot of that up.

Bruce brags in the movie that his fists are "registered as lethal weapons", adding that he'd "cripple Muhammad Ali". Shannon said to the Los Angeles Times earlier in August that Quentin seemed to have gone out of his way to depict her father as a "buffoon".

"He could shut up about it", Lee, the caretaker of her father's estate, told Variety after being asked how Tarantino could fix the situation. In Hollywood, Asian-American actor Lee, portrayed by Mike Moh, gets into a fight with Brad Pitt's character, a stunt man.

"[Tarantino] can portray Bruce Lee however he wanted to, and he did", she said.

Talking to Variety, Shannon said, "He could shut up about it". Lee challenges Booth to a three-round fight: Lee easily wins the first round, but he's totally overpowered when Booth hurls the martial artist into a auto, badly damaging the side panel. "If I say Cliff can beat Bruce Lee up, he's a fictional character, so he could beat Bruce Lee up".

Lee's training partner Dan Inosanto also countered Tarantino's vision, though he hadn't seen the film at the time he initially spoke. "Brad would not be able to beat up Bruce Lee, but Cliff maybe could", Tarantino said.

Linda Lee Caldwell previously took the LA Times to task for "sensationalizing the life and death of an extraordinarily gifted human being".

'But it's a little disingenuous for him to say, "Well this is how he was, but this is a fictional movie, so don't worry too much about it"'.
