An Open Letter To Zoe Saldana

zoeninasidebyside

Before I begin, please know that the majority of my disgust is reserved for Cynthia Mort and Jeremy Iovine. They hold primary responsibility for your casting in the upcoming film "Nina," and that choice symbolizes the utter disregard the film industry has shown for telling the stories of Black women faithfully.

But you're a grown woman, Zoe, and you made the decision to participate in this film despite public objections from Nina's daughter Simone. Of course you owe nothing to me or the thousands of other people of African descent who find your choice to portray Nina disturbing and offensive.
Girl you TRIED itCollapse )
Everybody involved in this project needs to have several seats. The makeup is terrible and even Nina's daughter wants to pull the plug. Zoe...girl give it up.
