‘Black Panther’ Is Dangerous For Black Kids – Terry Gilliam

So it’s no surprise that a white filmmaker has come along to trash it. Oscar-nominated writer and director Terry Gilliam recently spoke with IndieWire and jumped on the bandwagon of criticizing superhero movies, saying they’re creating a monoculture of blockbusters.

“I don’t like the fact they’re dominating the place so much,” he said. “They’re taking all the money that should be available for a greater variety of films. Technically, they’re brilliant. I can’t fault them because the technical skills involved in making them are incredible.”

His comments would have gone unnoticed, until he decided to specifically target Ryan Coogler’s magnum opus, calling Black Panther “bulls**t.”

“I hated Black Panther. It makes me crazy,” Gilliam said, seemingly under the impression that his opinion on the film matters. “It gives young Black kids the idea that this is something to believe in. Bulls**t. Its utter bulls**t.

“I think the people who made it have never been to Africa,” he continued. “They went and got some stylist for some African pattern fabrics and things. But I just hated that movie, partly because the media were going on about the importance of bulls**t.”

Not that anyone really was waiting on Terry Gilliam’s White opinion of how authentically African a Black film is, but now that he’s spit it out, he may want to know that key members of BP’s cast have, in fact, been to the continent.

Rubi Rose Shuts Down Age Controversy Over “Bad and Boujee” Video, “I Was 18”

Rubi Rose has swiftly risen to stardom in recent years, gearing up for the release of her debut album following a string of successful singles. Her journey into the spotlight began with appearances in iconic 2010s music videos. While she made waves in Cardi B’s “WAP,” her initial breakthrough came from her cameo in Migos’ chart-topping hit “Bad and Boujee.”

Recently, Rose’s appearance on the Joe Budden Podcast sparked a flurry of controversy. During the interview, she mentioned being only 16 when she starred in the “Bad and Boujee” video, igniting a backlash over the perceived inappropriateness of her casting at such a young age. The public outcry was so intense that Rose felt compelled to clarify her statement.

Taking to Twitter, the rapper corrected the record, posting a clip from the podcast with a caption: “I was 18 in the ‘Bad and Boujee’ video y’all,” she wrote. “My bad.” Indeed, the math supports her claim. Born on October 2, 1997, Rose was 18 when the video was filmed and 19 when it was released on October 31, 2016.

This isn’t the first time Rose’s age has stirred up controversy. In a December 2023 VladTV interview, she hinted at past romantic involvements with rappers Travis Scott and 21 Savage. The interview raised eyebrows as she might have been underage during those relationships. When the interviewer pointed out that she was 21 at the time of the interview, Rose’s evasive reaction added fuel to the speculation.

Internet detectives uncovered old Instagram posts from 2014, liked by Travis Scott, despite Rose being only 16 at the time. They also found a deleted tweet where she implied lying about her age, stating, “Sometimes u have to lie about your age when it comes to NFL players.”
