    How was she a poor choice for the leading actress role? I really don't understand the controversy behind it.

    She has a history of tweets dismissive to african american history and culture and experience, specifically the american portion of it, in some peoples opinion.

    (it's always a history of tweets, anymore...maybe we should keep some thoughts to ourselves, lol)

    Oh ok. Now I see the reason why she was a poor choice to choose the leading role.

    Its not about finding the "right path" but more so finding the path that's right for you

    From my understanding they also added in a bunch of really random, stupid, "why in the seven hells did you think this was a good idea, this literally never happened or would've happened--please share with the rest of us whatever drugs you're on" stuff like having the main antagonist be a black slave bounty hunter chasing after her, and having some white slave owner be the savior at the end of the day

    Well, a few people at my job like that movie. Also many people complained that the black actress is British. Like I don't really see the origin of the actress background is a huge issue in my opinion.
