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
