Jamie Foxx’s Travyon Martin T-Shirts Brings Out The Crazy People

Published

Jamie Foxx was honored at this weekend’s MTV Movie Awards, but it’s the t-shirt he wore to the event making headlines days later.

Foxx rocked a black t-shirt featuring the image of slain Florida teen, Travyon Martin. Martin was gunned down last year by neighborhood watchman, George Zimmerman, in what the gunman claims was self-defense.

Several celebrities have publicly called on local officials to prosecute Zimmerman, including Foxx. Debate over whether Zimmerman was justified in shooing the teen, or just a racist with a vandetta against Black people, has caused intense debate nationwide. And Foxx caught some of that backlash after wearing the t-shirt remembering the shooting victim.

During the MTV Movie Awards broadcast, the actor was slammed on Twitter by Zimmerman supporters who tweeted things like:

“F*ck Jamie Foxx and his Trayvon Martin shirt. Motherf*cker got what he deserved.”

“F*ck that n*gger with the Trayvon Martin shirt on.”

“Nice shirt, Jamie Foxx. Go f*ck yourself.”

And it goes on, and on and on. This morning, HipHollywood attempted to reach out to some of these Twitter users to discuss their views on Mr. Foxx’s t-shirt, but most had deleted their accounts … and those who didn’t, have protect their tweets.

Still, if you would like to read more of their vitriol, one website has captured several screen grabs and posted them online for your viewing pleasure.

    I’m proud of Jamie Foxx for still raising the awareness that justice STILL MUST BE SERVED for Trayvon Martin!!!!!!!! The really hurtful thing about of this is that Trayvon isn’t the only African American who lost his/her life due to wrongful violence!!!!!!!

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

Published

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
