Jada Pinkett Smith Burst Into Tears As She Talks About Being Misrepresented In The Tupac Biopic

Actress Jada Pinkett Smith is not happy about the ‘representation of her relationship’ with Tupac Shakur in the movie ‘All Eyez on Me’. Speaking on Atlanta radio V-103 show, Jada explained why she called out the movie production team after ‘All Eyez on Me’ premiered on June 15. “I wanted people to know that what you’re seeing in regards to my relationship with Tupac is not true, and that was important to me because,” she said, getting teary-eyed. “My relationship was really special and, um, it was very complicated and, um, I just felt like it was a huge disservice. “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 added.“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. 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.” Jada continued “If you really feel like you did right by Pac, then congratulations. But if you didn’t, really sit with that. ’Cause I hope next time, if you get another opportunity to make another movie about a legend, you’ll do a different thing,” she concluded
