Bye Spike Lee! John Boyega Blasts Black Brit Vs. Black American Actor Argument In “She’s Got To Have It 2” For Being Bollocks

Spoilers ahead…

English Actor John Boyega Calls She’s Gotta Have It 2 Scene Trash

It seems like this new season of She’s Gotta Have It 2 is getting mixed reviews by Netflix users and even a prominent Hollyweird actor jumped in to shame it. English actor John Boyega just called a scene from the series “trash” where it looks like the writers tried to tackle a familiar argument; Why do Black Brits seemingly get cast so frequently for Black America roles?

In the clip from the series, characters Nola Darling and her British born boyfriend go at the argument with chalkboard scratching points. The clip has been floating around Twitter getting tons of criticism.

Star Wars star John Boyega let it be known in a tweet that he too took issue with the dialogue. Where do you think this went sideways?

Hit play to hear it.

 

Previously, Samuel L. Jackson commented on Daniel Kaluuya, a British raised actor, for being cast over an American Black actor in Get Out. His point was that a Black American actor may have been able to connect more deeply with the role. This quote previously caused a transatlantic frenzy on Twitter:

“I know the young brotha that’s in the movie, he’s British. So, there are a lot of Black British actors who work in this country. So, I tend to wonder, what would that movie have been with an American brotha who really understands that in a way. Because Daniel grew up in a country where they have been interracial dating for 100 years…”

Kaluuya eventually reacted to Jackson, stating that his skin color is an issue regardless of where he was born or where he travels to work. But, when it comes to She’s Gotta Have it 2, some viewers feel like the writers are taking the dialogue straight off Twitter, only they’re making trash points.

Do YOU think this scene was something to cancel Netflix over?

Hit the flip to see how else folks are offended by it.
