Issa Rae Hilariously Responds To Criticism On Diverse Love Interests In Her Movies
Issa Rae is not just the creator of our favorite HBO series, “Insecure” – she’s a bonafide movie star. 2020 just started and Issa Rae already has two movies hitting theaters – The Photograph and The Lovebirds. Both are romance films in which Issa Rae stars as the leading lady, but “The Lovebirds” is peculiar because the story focuses on an interracial relationship. Issa posted the extended trailer to her Instagram with the following caption:
“The LOVEBIRDS Trailer Every happy couple has one moment that defines their relationship. Watch the official trailer for my new movie #TheLovebirds with @KumailN – Coming to theatres April 3! @thelovebirdsmovie”
But, not everyone appreciates such diversity. Twitter user @TheBlackChannel tweeted:
“Last week @IssaRae was promoting Black/Asian “love”. This week she’s pivoting to Black/Black “love?” This chick isn’t a “swirler.” She’s a CAROUSEL. And EVERYBODY’S getting a turn. This is NOT a good look.”
The 35-year-old creative responded with this hilarious gif of a woman on a carousel as a retort!
