Bobby Brown FURIOUS? Reportedly BLINDSIDED By Bobbi Kristina Biopic, Details..
Backlash & Former RHOA Star responds:
Almost immediately after the film made headlines, Demetria McKinney (above), faced backlash for her role in the upcoming project. The Quad actress/ex-RHOA star released a statement shortly after the on-set photo surfaced online:
“I have the utmost respect for Whitney Houston and those who have followed me through the years know that. I am NOT an opportunistic person and wouldn’t post, do, say, or be a part of anything that would diminish the light that she is, nor the light of her life : BK. That’s part of the problem, we get emotionally charged over things we do not know or have a full understanding of. Even a criminal is innocent until proven guy so it’s only right that If a biopic is made and you choose to watch it, you pass judgment then.”
“Whitney was very protective of her baby girl. And loved her dearly as we saw on being Bobby Brown. Whitney had people she trusted to show and tell that story and I think that once people understand the heart behind the biopic if one is made, the opinion will shift. People are all on here speaking about things they haven’t seen. They haven’t been privy to the conversations and care taken in the process of something like that done by people who TRULY KNEW and LOVE her and her family.. I would love for people to put the soap box down until they see what’s to be. That’s all. Wish u an awesome day!”
No release date for the film has been announced, but it has been reported that Vivica Fox is portraying Pat Houston in the film. It’s unclear how Bobby Brown will handle things going forward, but if his disapproval is true, the network will most likely face opposition for the project.
