Jada Pinkett Smith Blasts Tupac Biopic 'All Eyez on Me': The Depiction of My Friendship Is Hurtful

The 45-year-old actress points out that the reimagining of her relationship with Tupac when attending the Baltimore School for the Arts in the '80s 'has been deeply hurtful.'
Jada Pinkett Smith is not happy with the just-released Tupac Shakur biopic "All Eyez on Me". The 45-year-old actress took to Twitter on what would have been the late rapper's 46th birthday on Friday, June 16, the same day the movie's coming out in theaters, to fact-check some scenes in the biopic.

"Forgive me... my relationship to Pac is too precious to me for the scenes in 'All Eyez On Me' to stand as truth," Jada began her lengthy rant. "Pac never read me that poem. I didn't know that poem existed until it was printed in his book."

"Pac never said goodbye to me before leaving for LA. He had to leave abruptly and it wasn't to pursue his career," she continued. "I've never been to any of Pac's shows by his request. We never had an argument backstage."

Pointing out at the plot errors, one of which is the depiction of their friendship when attending the Baltimore School for the Arts in the '80s, the wife of Will Smith tweeted, "The reimagining of my relationship to Pac has been deeply hurtful.

Jada went on to thank Katerina Graham, the actress who plays her, and Demetrius Shipp Jr., who stars as Tupac and truly resembles the two-time Grammy nominee. "This is no fault of yours. Thank you for bringing so much heart and spirit to your roles," Jada wrote, adding, "You both did a beautiful job with what you were given. Thank you both."

Jada ended her rant with a tribute to Tupac, tweeting, "Happy birthday Pac, you are cradled in my heart for eternity. I love you."

Jada wasn't the only one to dislike the biopic as rapper Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson took to Instagram to say, "Man I watched the 2 PAC film, that was some bulls**t. Catch that s**t on a fire stick (sic) trust me. LOL SMH TRASH."

"I'm a big 2 PAC fan, I just don't think his story was done well he deserved better," the 41-year-old rapper added in another post. "Check it out, the s**t felt like I was watching a life time TV movie in a theater. I wanted to change the channel. The new edition story was better then that s**t. SMH."
