Boosie Walks Out Of ‘Color Purple’; Won’t Allow His Kids To Watch
One thing about Lil Boosie, he will not bite his tongue. He recently took his daughters to see The Color Purple and revealed that he walked out. He also said that he won’t allow his children to watch it.
Boosie must not have watched the original Color Purple. He obviously didn’t read the book either. I have heard a few people saying they didn’t know the Ciely and Suge Avery characters were lovers. In the book, it was a bit more obvious.
The original film was not a musical. But the new movie is an adaptation of the Broadway musical. That means there is a lot of music. The music wasn’t what bothered Boosie. It was a narrative he felt was being pushed, so he walked out. He wrote, “I had to walk out this Color Purple movie,” he tweeted. He noted that two older couples also walked out. “I had my little girls with me,” he wrote, and was unhappy that it seemed like an LGBT love story. “Good acting, but whoever wrote the script is pushing the narrative hard. As a parent, I will not let my little girl watch this film.”

One commenter responded, “Way to announce you’ve never read a book.” Another said, “So yall more upset that Mrs Celie and Shug Avery was exploring their sexuality but didn’t draw the line at her being molested at 14 by her stepfather and having his kids?”
Taraji P. Henson plays the role of Suge Avery. With this remake being an adaptation of a musical, I am excited about the vocals and the dancing in the movie. Taraji shared a clip to her socials recorded from her home rehearsal, and the amount of work to prep for this role was amazing. I can’t wait to see it.
I’ll be honest. You have to research movies before you go see them to know at least what it’s about. It’s possible with some movies, there may be things you may not know about, but researching is good. Check out the trailer for the movie below.
