Casting is in full swing and plans are under way for VH1′s upcoming TLC biopic. Recently, we learned that Lil Mama would play the role of Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopez and now it’s been announced that KeKe Palmer, has been casted to play Chilli ((real name Rozonda Ocelean Thomas). While this is good news for fans of the 20-year-old actress, everyone isn’t yet sold that she can pull it off. A few fans took to twitter, tweeting their displeasure with Keke landing the new gig and the Chicago native wasn’t having it. She defended herself, writing:
People kill me, I don’t remember Angela Bassett looking ANYTHING like Tina Turner. And she RIPPED that role, ? People need to realize hat movies aren’t casted by people looking like who they’re playing. They’re casted by who can do the role. I don’t know about you, but I would much rather see a movie that is well acted, then a movie with a bunch of look a like’s. Cause Ben Affleck isn’t even Hispanic, but the man he played in Argo IS. I shouldn’t play the part because my baby hair isn’t the perfect texture?. Goodnight Twitter, goodnight.
