Pilloried by police — and even members of his own family — film director Quentin Tarantino reportedly is bowing to mounting pressure to apologize for calling law enforcement officers "murderers."

The Wrap reports the "Pulp Fiction" director will explain his controversial comments at a New York City anti-police brutality rally in an opinion piece — and apologize to those who were offended.

An unnamed source tells the Wrap Tarantino will pick the time and media outlet.

Tarantino has come under heavy fire from police around the country for his remarks at the rally Oct. 24 — four days after a New York City police officer was gunned down.

"When I see murders, I do not stand by . . . I have to call a murder a murder and I have to call the murderers the murderers," the director said at the rally.

The remark enraged New York City police, who launched a boycott of Tarantino's films, followed by police unions in Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and the one representing New Jersey State Police.

The Wrap reports by last Friday, the National Association of Police Organizations — a group representing 1,000 police units and associations and over 241,000 sworn law enforcement officers — joined the movement.

Even Tarantino's father slammed his famous son, calling him "dead wrong" for his slam at police.

But on Sunday, the Wrap reports, Hollywood A-lister actor Jamie Foxx threw his support behind Tarantino, whose new film, "The Hateful Eight," opens in December.

"Keep telling the truth and don't worry about none of the haters," Foxx said at the Beverly Hilton during an awards presentation, the Wrap reports.
