Game Sounds Off On Haters of Tupac Biopic "All Eyez On Me"

Graham portrays Jada Pinkett Smith, who was a close friend of Shakur's.

In a series of tweets sent out on Friday, she wrote: "Forgive me... my relationship to Pac is too precious to me for the scenes in All Eyez On Me to stand as truth".

He added to the outlet that he's "hurt and disappointed" Jada chose to blast the project so publicly, adding that he studied the actress' own words about the late star in interviews to ensure the film was "very responsible" towards her and everyone else's images.

L.T. Hutton recently told TMZ that he's hurt by Jada's accusations and stresses that the film may have taken creative license to tell Pac's story, but overall the film is an accurate representation of the iconic rapper's life. He had to leave abruptly and it wasn't to pursue his career.


What's more, Jada Pinkett Smith made a point to say that she didn't want to place any of her blame on actress Kat Graham, who plays her in the biopic, or actor Demetrius Shipp Jr., who plays Tupac.

"I've never been to any of Pac's shows by his request", she added. "We never had an argument backstage", Pinkett Smith continued. "You both did a lovely job with what you were given". The Tupac Shakur biopic was originally projected to bring in between $15 to $22 million, but according to a Deadline report by Anthony D'Alessandro, the film benefited from some prime placement in theaters across the country.

The filmmakers of "All Eyez on Me" didn't immediately comment Friday.
