During an appearance Wednesday on The Ryan Cameron Morning Show With Wanda Smith on Atlanta radio’s V-103, while promoting her latest film, Girls Trip, Jad had a strong response to Cameron’s questions about the movie.

“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 said.

“I thought it was just handled in a very disrespectful way, and 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,” she continued.

Jada also felt like those behind the film their relationship to sell the movie to the public.

“And if you’re really saying that you’re honoring a man’s legacy, then honor his legacy. And if you don’t have the story, fall back until you do,” she chastised. “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 cannot expect other people to do that if we’re not willing to do that ourselves. Pac is precious to us.”

Check out Jada’s full response below in the video of her appearance on the show. She begins discussing All Eyez On Me at the 16:45 mark.

Jada is speaking some serious truth here. We hate the film is not accurate from her perspective. It really makes us wonder what else was embellished in the film…(sips tea)…

Brilliantly “black-ish!”

The sitcom has been a mainstay of the television since its inception. Whether you were watching Leave It To Beaver, The Brady Bunch, Good Times, Family Matters  or even Malcolm in The Middle you know and love them well! However, in recent years it has been on the decline, on the rise instead is reality television and a few celebrity driven talk shows. ABC’s latest sitcom begs to differ and steal the night in “black-ish!” “Black-ish” is the brilliant brainchild and comedy of Lawrence Fishburne. The series stars Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross as they raise their modern black family in a mostly Caucasian environment.

Surrounded by Suburbia they are the self-described “mythical and magical” oasis of Black people. Indeed they would be considered a successful black family. Anthony Anderson is Dre Johnson, father of the family, who has just received a promotion at his job to Vice President of Urban Affairs. The problem is he believes he only received the position due to his skin color and merit. To make things worst his kids are not connected to their Black cultural roots and his wife, Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross) is biracial and firmly against his attempts to make them more black. Lawrence Fishburne is “Pops,” his wisecracking father more annoyed by his “black-ish” family than anything. In the first episode, Andre Jr. tries out for the field hockey team instead of basketball and asks for a Bat Mitzah so he can be Jewish like his other friends. Naturally, his father flips out and tries to force a makeshift African rites of passage ceremony on him in the backyard, but not before jeopardizing his job.
