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…

Could There Be A ‘Black Panther’ And ‘Luke Cage’ Crossover In The Works?



With all the hype over Black Panther (and it breaking box office records) fans are craving more of the Marvel superhero and crafting ways to intertwine him across the MCU. One theory is to have T’Challa and Luke Cage on screen together for an epic crossover episode during Cage’s sophomore season on Netflix.

The idea isn’t farfetched to Luke Cage star Simone Missick.

“I would love that,” Missick who plays Misty Knight told HipHollywood. “I mean doesn’t Black Panther come to New York, Misty Knight could travel to Wakanda. Maybe she takes a vacation and winds up in Wakanda.”

But while Missick was only speaking hypothetically, she said LC showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker and BP director Ryan Coogler are good pals so it’s not out of the question. “They already know each other. Cheo is working on Creed 2 writing the script and that was Ryan’s movie, so that would be awesome.”

Meanwhile, when asked about a Black Panther and Luke Cage meeting on screen, Coker was enthusiastic. “I would love that, I really would!,” he told “I mean, because it would be, like, OK, T’Challa could definitely get on Pop’s free haircut list.”

In an interview with BET, Coogler was asked about three MCU characters coming together – Blade, T’Challa, and Luke Cage.

“I don’t control that stuff. I know that stuff’s all complicated. I wish Kevin [Feige] was here to see if you could talk to him, because he knows more about it. But I think it would be awesome. I loved those characters. [Blade] paved the way for what we’re doing now…And what Cheo [Hodari Coker] is doing with Netflix is just incredible, putting African-American culture on the screen like that and seeing people react to it that aren’t from that culture…the same way they react to a black basketball player or a black musician. It works for film, too. It’s universal.”
