A lot of backlash from the fans and representatives of singer Nina Simone on Zoe Saldana portraying her in the upcoming movie “Nina”.

Saldana, who is part Dominican and Puerto Rican has her skin being darken due to makeup in the movie. This is to make herself look like the singer, who is known to be one of the best in the music industry before she died. While some disapprove the casting of Saldana playing Nina, her daughter Lisa Simone looks at it from a different perspective.

“It’s unfortunate that Zoe Saldana is being attacked so viciously when she is someone who is part of a larger picture,” the 53-year-old-singer-actress told Time Magazine. “It’s clear she brought he best to the project, but unfortunately she’s being attacked when she’s not responsible for any of the writing or the lies.”

Check out the trailer and comment below if Saldana should or shouldn’t be destroyed by playing the role of Nina.
