Jada Pinkett-Smith: They Used My Relationship w/ Tupac To Sell A Movie
Jada Pinkett-Smith Continues To Slam Tupac Movie
Jada Pinkett-Smith is further expanding upon her dislike for the Tupac’s biopic, “All Eyez On Me”. She says,
What you’re seeing in regards to my relationship with 2Pac is not true. My relationship with Pac would have shown people a true—what he truly was. Cause it’s one thing to see Pac’s persona, publicly, and who he was personally.
She also added that she felt like the creators of the film used their relationship to sell the film to the public.
I felt like it was exploitive of me and Pac – how they used our relationship to sell a movie. And I just felt like it was tomb raiding, in regards to Pac. I feel like we as black people, we have got to protect those individuals that we say are important to us, to our history and to our culture. We can not expect other people to do that if we’re not willing to do that ourselves. Pac is precious to us.
If you really feel like you did right by Pac, then congratulations. But if you didn’t, really sit with that. Cause I hope next time if you get an opportunity to make another movie about a legend you’ll do a different thing.
