Jada Pinkett-Smith always considered Tupac Shakur a friend and brother from another mother. The two knew each other since they were teens and continued to be great friends during their rise in entertainment.

So when she got the opportunity to see the knew film, All Eyez On Me, she was disturbed by a few of the discrepancies in the biopic on Shakur’s life. In several tweets, Pinkett-Smith shared why she didn’t agree with the direction of the film.

It’s unclear if Pinkett-Smith was asked to be a consultant on the film which has received mixed reviews. 50 Cent also had issues with the film and shared his displeasure on social media. However, Snoop has given the film props for telling Shakur’s story.

The movie should do well at the box office due to the anticipation that it has garnered. But having backlash from a key person in Shakur’s life is not a good way to start opening weekend.
