It’s “Lights Out” for Will Smith’s ‘Bright’ Says Chance The Rapper

Will Smith’s Bright, which he debuted on Netflix in December hasn’t received raving reviews. In fact, it’s been trashed by all accounts. Indiewire labeled in  “the worst movie of the year” and The Wrap wasn’t feeling the “profoundly stupid racial metaphor that somehow amplifies stereotypes of actual ethnic groups.”

Damn Daniel.

Well, the trashing has stopped but merely found a new medium. Chance The Rapper chimed in after streaming the movie over the holiday week and he wasn’t pleased. He felt the movie, a  supernatural cop drama “where two police officers, one a human, the other an orc, embark on a routine night patrol” was “shallow” and aired his views on Twitter.
