Chance The Rapper isn’t a fan of Netflix’s new blockbuster “Bright”

Chance The Rapper has said he’s not a huge fan of Will Smith‘s new flick Bright, but that doesn’t really matter because a large number of Neflix loyalists think otherwise.


The sci-fi thriller has received mixed reviews since its release, and Chance admits he’s not good at criticizing movies, but was kind enough to offer some useful pieces of advice as he did on some others that were released within the year.

His recent comments on Bright concentrated on the flick’s connection to America and racism.

“Wondering how you guys are feeling about the lynched ork in #Brightmovie,” the 24-year-old singer and music producer tweeted on Tuesday.

Chance continued with, “I found the way they tried to illustrate americas racism through the mythical creatures to be a little shallow.”

2017 has definitely been a remarkable year for cinema, in both good and bad ways, however, the biggest problem lies with the widening gap between what critics and fans want to see.

For example, Bright  scored only 27% reviewer rating on Rotten Tomatoes while earning as much as 89% score from audience.

“Just watched the movie  and I’ll never take the opinion of a movie critic or social media reactions seriously again! Bright is one of the best movies I’ve seen all year,” KidSmoove wrote on Twitter, but Chance The Rapper isn’t pleased with that.

The Chicago star who is known for his works on Acid Rap and Surf  said after discussing with his fans, “I always feel a lil cheated when I see allegorical racism in movies cause that racism usually stems from human emotion or tolerance but not by law or systems the way it is in real life. The characters in #Bright live in a timeline where racism is gone… cause we hate ork now.”

Here are a few tweets from the multiple Grammy Awards winner:

I tried to look at it that way but a few minutes into the movie they make wills character say “Fairy Lives don’t Matter”

I think the idea is that they’re a step below bottom of the spectrum blackness. Which is why Will’s character, the Mexican cop and the ork have that dialogue in the street.
