Newswire: Jada Pinkett Smith and 50 Cent are both pissed at that Tupac biopic
Benny Boom’s Tupac Shakur biopic, All Eyez On Me, opened this weekend to tepid reviews, with critics suggesting that the film does little to capture the drama and heights of Shakur’s life and career. Now, you can add Shakur’s old friend, Jada Pinkett Smith, and long-time admirer, 50 Cent, to the list of people disappointed in the film; both got on social media today to call out the movie for its portrayal of the rap legend’s life.
Pinkett Smith went into extensive detail with her critiques, pointing out a number of scenes between her and Shakur that she says simply didn’t happen:
Forgive me… my relationship to Pac is too precious to me for the scenes in All Eyez On Me to stand as truth.

Pac never read me that poem. I didn’t know that poem existed …
