They Stole The Soul! #BoycottTateTaylorsBrownBiopic
HSK Exclusive - The man has spoken! James Brown will go down in movie history as a “Sex Machine” — rather than the Civil Rights activist that led countless brothers and sisters to stand-up with confidence and belt out the words, “I’m Black And I’m Proud!” Don’t believe me.. Just ask Tate Taylor, who lent his hand in picking the title — “Get On Up”.
“A nod to the Godfather of Soul’s “Get Up (I Feel Like Being a) Sex Machine” that’s also snappy and hip enough to befit a Brown biopic.”
To add insult to injury, “The Help” director won’t only NOT confirm whether or not James Brown’s musical masterpieces will accompany the flick — the Mississippi native has brought Mick Jagger on board to “compliment” James Brown’s dance moves.
“James Brown, really, was the first real dancer that broke the ground of how people move, and Mick Jagger has complimented that and tipped his hat to that forever.” ~Taylor Tate
Forget about the living folks who really knew James Brown … like Maceo Parker, Fred Wesley and Bootsy Collins — Tate Taylor’s brought his team British invasion to conquer Black American Soul! That’s while the director takes the movie set to his own native Mississippi backyard, rather than James Brown’s South Carolina and Georgia roots!
“Deadline is deleting all posts that are critical of Grazer and this whitewash of a black icon [Chadwick Boseman].”
Here’s what an insider exclusively tells HSK:
“Eight white people in a room will determine the Godfather of Soul. This is worse than the Nina Simone biopic. There are 50 black biopics floating around Hollywood, all written by white people, including two 65-year-old white men who wrote Tupac’s movie; the 36-year-old white girl who wrote “Straight Outta Compton ;” the two British writers who have stolen the King movies ; and the Richard Pryor movie, another all-white affair.”
