Pinkett-Smith Unhappy With Tupac Biopic

Actress Jada Pinkett Smith has criticized the dramatization of her friendship with late rapper Tupac Shakur in the biopic “All Eyez on Me” which has just opened.

Pinkett Smith used a series of tweets to shoot down certain moments of the biopic, which chronicles the life, death, and legacy of the legendary rapper. It also depicts the tumultuous relationship between the lifelong friends, including events in which Pinkett Smith says never occurred.

Pinkett Smith did praise Kat Graham and Demetrius Shipp Jr., the actors who portrayed her and Shakur, respectively, in the film. However she explained some of the embellished scenes as well:

The comments come as reviews for the $40 million-budgeted film trashed it, the movie scoring just a 40/100 on Metacritic. The film is currently on track for an opening weekend in the $30 million range.
