I’ve honestly lost my patience discussing Zoe Saldana and this Nina Simone biopic, but I’m just going to be real when I say that if I see one more person defending Zoe or this movie, I’m either unfollowing you or (being lenient) tumblr savioring you. I’m not going to stand aside and watch as people defend the offensive nature of this biopic and intentionally ignore how fucking problematic it is for a mixed race, lighter skinned Black Latina to exaggerate her own features just to play a dark-skinned, Black American woman, whose life was defined by her physical appearance.
