Fans Slam Zoe Saldana For “Painting” Her Face Black For Nina Simone’s Role
Fans of legendary singer and activist, Nina Simone, are currently tearing actress, Zoe Saldana apart for painting her face black in a trailer for the new Nina Simone biopic. And even Nina Simone’s family got in on the act too.
Zoe Saldana, who plays the legendary performer and civil rights activist, Nins Simone, had her skin look darker and her nose made to look wider in a poster and the movie trailer. Which is awkward because they could have just made their job easier by casting a “black” actress (who are in abundance) for the role
Watch the trailer below and see the bashing that followed after the cut
.@zoesaldana Cool story but please take Nina's name out your mouth. For the rest of your life.
