CNN Surprised No Violence Straight Outta Compton-the jasmine brand

A certain headline by CNN seems to have ruffled a few feathers. On Monday, the network ran a segment reporting that there wasn’t violence at movie theaters during the opening weekend of the F. Gary Gray directed film Straight Outta Compton. The title of the segment was

Straight Outta Compton. Hip-Hop Film Had Long Lines, No Violence.

CNN host Ashleigh Banfield reported,

Some movie theaters were worried about violence when Straight Outta Compton hit the screen. Instead, it only led to longer lines, ticket lines and some big money, too.
