Controversy Over Zoe Saldana as Nina Simone Continues

People Still Hate Zoe Saldana as Nina Simone

Many still upset by Zoe Saldana being cast as Nina Simone. 

While it makes its Cannes debut, Nina is receiving backlash on Twitter for its casting choices, while the director just filed a lawsuit against the film's producers.

People took to Twitter to air their grievances, pointing out that there are other actresses who resemble Simone who could've played her, and that casting her was a form of Black face.

There's also a #BlackBiopics hashtag, in which users suggest unsuitable casting for iconic roles, such as "Coretta Scott King as played by Willow Smith."
