Ava DuVernay Calls Giuliana Rancic Ignorant



Director Ava DuVernay is rallying behind Zendaya Coleman after the young actress slammed E! News’ Giuliana Rancic for making negative comments about her locs.

“You’re beautiful, Queen. We bless the ignorant and wish them well. Onward. xo,” Ava tweeted in response to Zendaya’s lengthy Instagram message shaming Rancic for suggesting that the Disney star looked like she smelled of patchouli oil or weed during Sunday night’s Oscars.

In the IG post, Zendaya referred to DuVernay and Grammy nominated star, Ledisi who both wear locs and stated that her Oscars hairstyle was in efforts to make a statement.

“To say that an 18 year old young woman with locs must smell of patchouli oil or “weed” is not only a large stereotype but outrageously offensive,” Coleman wrote.

“My [me] wearing my hair locs on an Oscar red carpet was to showcase them in a positive light, to remind people of color that our hair is good enough.”

Fashion guru, Claire Sulmers, who was recently acknowledged as one of Ebony’s Power 100, also reacted to the Disney star’s post, writing on Instagram:

“I wear locs. I don’t smoke or smell of weed. Thanks @zendaya for confronting stereotypes and ignorance head on.”

‘Black Panther’ Sequel To Focus On Okoye & Dora Milaje?!



A Billi, A Billi, A Billi … when your movie nets a billion dollars OF COURSE there’s going to be a sequel!!

As Black Panther continues to dominate the box office, talk has already turned to a sequel. Marvel president Kevin Fiege confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that they will definitely be returning the Wakanda stating, “we absolutely will do that.” But when asked what direction the movie would take, his answer was intriguing:

“I think there’s lots of potential. It’s a balance between leaving people wanting more and then giving them too much, but I would watch a movie about any of those characters you just named. I think Shuri’s astounding, and you’ll see much more of her in our universe. Okoye, I think I’d watch three action films just Okoye. I’m not saying we’re doing that, but I’m saying that we’re intrigued by them.”

Yessss, be intrigued! We all need more Danai Gurira (who plays Dora Milaje leader, Okoye) in our lives.

Wakanda, forever!!!
