It’s called ‘acting’ for a reason. You don’t need to be a card carrying FBA member to portray Whitney Houston in a movie.
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
And we should not be supporting this. They could have easily found an FBA to play Whitney, but it's better to allow these hateful people to play our icons because those very same people don't have any icons of their own.
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
And it's failing miserably!
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
I don’t think they realize the more they do this, the worst it gets…..but it’s there money
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
This will flop just like "The Woman King". If the Black Grassroots don't support, then it isn't going anywhere.
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
This agent behavior of yours is getting out of hand. She's Black period. If you are so concerned about African Americans getting roles, then put up the money and make your own movies. He who pays, calls the shots.
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
This is a long time bull💩 agenda in that the power's that be greenlight this garbage KNOWING full damm well nobody is going to go and watch these types of movie's. From "woman king" to "Harriet" etc etc they all flopped but as you can see that was never the point.
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
I don’t understand your problem with black people from outside of America working in Hollywood, Hollywood is the pinacale of acting so it’s only natural actors want to work in Hollywood. Same way Spain and England are the pinnacle of football/ soccer so players go to Europe…
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
But Whitney Houston was gorgeous.
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
They coming for Bass Reeves next. The guy that produced Yellowstone is doing Bass's story with the guy that played MLK in Selma. I wouldn't have a problem with it but none of those overseas black folk cast black Americans in any of their movies. Not ever Nollywood.
 
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
Saw the trailer and knew something was off. The vibe is way off and no one was feeling it. Now we see why.
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
Aren’t they tired of these movies Flopping? When will they learn
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
We all see it, this didn't even need to be made. Gabrielle Dennis already rocked this role. ❤️🙂👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿
 
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
They are trying their best to make the world believe that foundational black Americans really love America through black immigrants. Wow.
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
Kids these days don't have classics like I did. New Jack City, Do The Right Thing, Above the Rim & the list goes on. Looks like those days of FBA only movies & shows are long gone. 😒
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
Naomi Ackie is don't look nothing like Whitney Houston. Whitney was beautiful. Naomi Ackie is hard took look at (to me) This is an insult to Whitney Houston. I'm sick of non FBA actors and actresses protraying our People (FBA)
 
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
😡 I'm not going to see it. It's disrespectful to Whitney and her family.
 
If you don't own the means of production why are you complaining.
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
She doesn’t look anything like Whitney Houston
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
Calm me clueless, but what is an FBA? Aint she black and an actress and can act? If she embodies the role of aunty Whitney then good for her.. What other requirement is needed?
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
Her eyes are to big Whitney Houston eyes was not that big this woman playing Whitney is strange looking Whitney was a beautiful black woman.
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
How much are they paying you? I just know Russia, China, Iran (to name a few) are enjoying watching you seed the fabrics of separatism to bring about a “revolution” or civil war. I just I’m dead before it happens smh.

FBAs have been casted to play non FBA characters for years (i.e. Idi Amin, Nelson Mandela, etc.) should they not get the roles because they are not from Africa?
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
Lip syncing and all, mane we gotta get our stories back
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
I will not be watching this
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
I wish they would just #LeaveWhitneyHoustonAlone👸🏽 Let her Rest In Peace
 
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
Interesting enough would you be mad if a non FBA played Shirley Chisholm or Malcolm x?
 
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
Casting for the movie was done by Kim Coleman of @KTC_Casting and Angela Peri and Lisa Lobel of @BostonCasting. The recruitment flyer says they are committed to “diverse casting”. Maybe it’s time for a discussion about their process? pic.twitter.com/tDrK9J4678
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
That doesn't even resemble Whitney! In any way shape of form. Hollywood strikes again.
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
Dammit I thought that was brandy. What the hell

In reply to @tariqnasheed
Whitney Houston... is the #GOAT
 
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
And why not? The target audience - that’s not FBA btw - won’t care.
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
Whitney did not have a strong face.
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
Dude look up how many Hispanics killing BLK folk everyday! Asians assaulting our women in shops! That's how I know u don't care bout BLK folk, by what u focus on using your platform to promote! Mexicans killing blks in your backyard Tariq, make a movie bout that! 💯
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️
 
 
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
I wish they just let Whitney rest
 
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
She’s beat too 🤦🏾‍♂️
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
It never stops! Another movie same strategy
 
 
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
Should NOT be supporting this film anyway Clive Davis and Pat Houston making money off Whitney’s death
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
That’s been their Modus Operandi from they’re left the European continent, the question is how many of you will spend their money to go watch it putting more money into their coffers eh???
 
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
They failed to realize we can’t relate to non-FBA playin our icons… It never sits right with our spirit… Example, look at Jonathan Majors blowing up not just bcuz he can act we can feel his mannerisms through the screen.. it’s not fake
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
🤦🏿🤦🏿🤦🏿🤦🏿
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
I can’t get past how f’n UGLY she is! She is NOT my Whitney!
 
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
They should of just let Mariah Carey or Beyoncé to play Whitney Houston
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
They Can Control Them Better Than 'Foundational Black Americans', Because When Something - Go Down, We'll Tell Them To 'Go Ta' Hell'! #andyouknowwhatthatmeans -$For Them!
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
Man you out of control... You always got some negative shit to say... Keep pushing that bullshit narrative, with your with your bullshit mindset...
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
She was not throwing her head like that! What the hell?
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
She does not look like Whitney Houston
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
She doesn't even look #FoundationalBlackAmerican look at her eyes they is bucking 🤦🏿‍♂️
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
Yup. I was wondering if you saw this bs
 
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
I am BIG fan of Tariq! But what Tariq is trying to do here with this FBA movement is counterproductive and is going nowhere! Yes you can organize rallies! But this division will be the reason you fail! Another reason for WS to rule us!
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
Idris Elba only gets roles because they can't afford Denzel
 
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
Only talent counts…
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
Wont get a dime of my money...
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
She don't even look like Whitney! But they got the right actor for Clive Davis! Terrible!
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
But Angela Bassett deserves an Oscar for Black Panther…much respect ✊🏿 but the #hypocrisy
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
Hating on your fellow brothers n sisters, all this FBA non FBA bull crap will get you nowhere😭😭😭 conquer and divide is working magic on you and you dont even know it #stophating
 
Man WHY? Why does Hollywood get to choose who plays Icons in the Foundational Black Community? AND why do we care. If you look at this woman, she doesn't look close to what Our Great Sister looked like...SMH
 
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
It’s only ok when so called “FBA” portray other people from other cultures right?
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
The Mike Tyson one looks worst... lol.
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
I thought that was Brandy.
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
There is a need for Us to bankroll those who want to tell Our stories starring Our People We should really be talking money and mastermind groups in media or this will keep happening over and over again
 
In reply to @tariqnasheed
And our people are gonna go watch it
