Long before Jada Pinkett Smith and the late Tupac Shakur were the household names they are today, they both were struggling students at the Baltimore School for the Arts in Maryland.
The friendship inspired the biopic “All Eyez On Me” which hits theatres Friday (Tupac’s birthday), following the close pals in the ’80s while they navigate their budding careers. The film shows off Tupac’s life, untimely death and ultimately the legacy he left behind.
But Pinkett Smith has a few choice words about the storyline and she took to Twitter on Friday to voice her concerns.
“Forgive me… my relationship to Pac is too precious to me for the scenes in ‘All Eyez On Me’ to stand as truth,” she tweeted.
But it didn’t end there, the 45-year-old actress wanted to clear the air on some of the scenes in the film:
As Pinkett Smith continued to set the record straight she didn’t want the blame to fall on actors Kat Graham (who plays a young Pinkett Smith) and Demetrius Shipp Jr. (Tupac).
“To @KatGraham and @Dshippjr this is no fault of yours. Thank you for bringing so much heart and spirit to your roles,” she wrote. “You both did a beautiful job with what you were given. Thank you both.”
The rapper took to Instagram to share his thoughts, “Man I watched the 2 PAC film, that was some bulls**t. Catch that s**t on a fire stick. Trust me. LOL SMH TRASH.”
“I had to see it for myself. Go check it out you gonna be mad as a mother***ker. I want my money back now!!!” he commented on the photo. “Some of y’all think I’m hating, SMH nah go see it. When you walk out of that mother***ker like this you gonna learn to listen to me.”
MC Hammer is the latest to comment on “All Eyez on Me”, giving it praise and telling fans to “go see the movie.”
Hammer took to Twitter and praised the flick, “It’s a truthful portrayal of who #Tupac the MAN was and is. Tupac (Legacy). Go see the movie.”
