Actress Nia Long is feeling the wrath of #BlackLivesMatter supporters after taking to social media to express her support of #AllLivesMatters. Nia posted this image on Instagram earlier this month which sparked the backlash:

Many feel the #AllLivesMatter hashtag is being used to distract or undermine the BLM’s message, one crafted out of frustration over numerous Black men and women being killed by police officers. Shortly after long posted her IG image, followers began expressing their disdain for her actions:

“I decided to delete Nia Long. No longer a follower. Good bye Nia,” one user wrote.

Another follower added, “Looks like someone is looking for employment & white checks. If all lives really mattered there would be no need for the black lives matter movement. Girl, you done f*cked up NOW. Black people are the only ones in your corner supporting you.”

“If all lives matter, we wouldn’t need to exclaim black lives matter … the purpose of the phrase to emphasize that Black lives are just as valuable and important as everyone else’s and therefore should be treated equally … smh this truly disappointing Nia!!!!”

Nia has not responded to the backlash, but should she? And will you stop supporting the actress if she doesn’t post a message showing definitive support for the BLM movement?

    This is the stupidest thing!!!!! Black people are always looking for a reason to be mad at someone. Why can’t All Lives Matter??? There are more than just black people in the world and I do undersrand what is going on, but Nia Long can not be considered a “sellout” for caring about all lives and not just the ones that look like her. #stupidityatitsbest

    I love her just a little bit more for this – not just thinking it but being brave enough to say it.Takes a lot of guts to speak out these days… wouldn’t be surprised to hear she is receiving death threats…

CodeBlack Could Redeem Itself With New Omar Epps, Paula Patton Flick

No shade to CodeBlack Films, but it’s last flick, All Eyes On Me, was kind of a disaster. From the poor ratings and reviews, to stars like Jada Pinkett Smith and 50 Cent slamming the film, folks just weren’t feeling it.

But that may all change with their new movie Traffik. The action-packed thriller slated for theaters April 27, 2018 stars Omar Epps, Paula Patton and Laz Alonso, and it looks pretty darn good.

Peep the trailer below.

In the film, Brea (Paula Patton) and John (Omar Epps) are off for a romantic weekend in the mountains. Isolated at a remote estate, the couple are surprised by the arrival of two friends, another couple, Darren (Laz Alonso) and Malia (Roselyn Sanchez). Just when the weekend starts to get back on track, a violent biker gang turns up and begins to torment them. The foursome are forced to fight for their lives against a gang who will stop at nothing to protect their secrets.

The film is written and directed by Deon Taylor. Patton is also a producer.
