 Jada Pinkett Smith wasn’t too happy with her portrayal in the Tupac Shakur biopic, “All Eyez On Me”. Tupac was a childhood friend of Jada’s while attending the Baltimore School for the Arts.

Over the weekend, Smith published a series of tweets about the false depiction of her relationship with the slain rapper.

To bring some light to the situation, Black Twitter decided to include, Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith’s husband, into the conversation.

“All Eyez On Me” producer, L.T. Hutton, stands by his depiction of the onscreen relationship between childhood friends, Jada Pinkett Smith and Tupac Shakur. Although Hutton admits that some creative liberties were taken in an interview with TMZ, he insists that he did his research, using old interviews showing Pinkett Smith speaking about her relationship with Shakur.

Something tells us that a phone call to Jada while drafting the script would have been preferred.

See the full interview below.

“All Eyez On Me” continuously made headlines due to inaccuracies.

In a series of Instagram posts that have since been deleted, rapper 50 Cent claims that he saw an iPhone in one of the scenes and demanded his money back.

The movie currently has a 23% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but CinemaScore gave the biopic an A-. “All Eyez On Me” also did better than expected, raking in an estimated $27.1 million.

TELL US: Was “All Eyez On Me” a disrespectful portrayal of Tupac’s life?
