Actor Clifton Powell goes OFF on Spike Lee on The Nationally Syndicated Russ Parr Morning Show….. You Got To Hear This!!!
Actor Clifton Powell went on a tirade about Spike Lee, admitting he didn’t like the director over his treatment of black actors, called him a punk, and said he would “whoop his a**”, while a guest on the Russ Parr Morning Show.
“He has never hired me, I don’t really care, because I would never want to work with him. Tyler [Perry] has found his genre. The problem with being African-American in film as a producer, you have to be so worried about stepping on toes. We have just a few outlets in terms of the dimensions we are as a people. We zero in because there are not enough dimensions of what we do.”
S/N: I do agree that Spike is hating because when his movies were relevant, there were some folks who didn’t care for his characters either like “Gator” but it was part of our experience. We all knew someone like Gator and some of us had a Gator in our family. Well I got a Mr. Brown in my neighborhood and I know an older lady just like Madea….Spike needs to stop. Get money.
