“Let me be the one from Chicago to personally tell you we not supporting this film out here

“That s— get ZERO love out here. S— is goofy and it’s a bunch of ppl from NOT around here telling u to support that s—

“The people that made that s— didn’t do so to “Save Lives”. It’s exploitive and problematic

“Also the idea that women abstaining from sex would stop murders is offensive and a slap in the face to any mother that lost a child here

“You don’t do any work with the children of Chicago, You don’t live here, you’ve never watched someone die here. Don’t tell me to be calm

“Just clarifying, I’m not damning the director of the film or anyone involved in making it. I am damning the film and the ideas it conveys,” he wrote on Twitter.
