Earlier today, Jada Pinkett-Smith hopped on Twitter to share her disappointment in the portrayal of her friendship with 2Pac in All Eyez on Me, the new biopic on 'Pac's life that hit theaters today. "My relationship to Pac is too precious to me for the scenes in All Eyez On Me to stand as truth," she tweeted, calling "the reimagining" of her relationship to 'Pac "deeply hurtful." She wasn't the only celebrity to voice her displeasure as 50 Cent took to his Instagram account to critique the movie as well.
"Man I watched the 2Pac film," he posted, "that was some bullshit. Catch that shit on a fire stick," 50 said, referring to Amazon's Fire Stick device that's been used by many to illegally stream movies to their TVs.

In a second post on Instagram, Fif elaborated on why he was feeling some type of way about All Eyez on Me. "I'm a big 2Pac fan," he began. "I just don't think his story was done well; he deserved better.
"The shit felt like I was watching a Lifetime TV movie in a theater," 50 continued. "I wanted to change the channel. The New Edition story was better then that shit."

50 also had an issue with the historical inaccuracies in the film, specifally the featured technology that didn't exist while Pac was still alive:
