omg you’ve seen people DEFEND her? :( that’s depressing tbh
it’s not MANY people, it’s a handful of people, but that alone is enough. i’m not naming names because i’m a considerate person and because i’ve already let the person know that i’m not exactly too fond of the fact that their defending this shit that’s happening with this nina simone movie
Let’s not forget the “it’s not really blackface because she’s not white” argument. I already had to unfollow some people cause of this bs…
my patience is nil to none. it’s indefensible and unbelievable. but i hope this mess gets left on the cutting room floor.
i literally wanted to punch that one personn who said it isn’t blackface because she isn’t white. smfh for these assholes.
ide know what to say anymore because me and other people have sat here and explained time and time again that zoe doesn’t have to be going around shucking and jiving, and dawning black paint and obnoxious red lipstick in order for her to be in black faceshe’s black, yes, but she’s EXAGGERATING her own features in order to "look" like nina.
how does that not seem offensive or ridiculous to some of these people? especially when they could have just GASP hired someone who was physically similar to nina
