Saldana, 37, tweeted a quote from Simone on Wednesday, only for the family of the late Feeling Good singer to demand she 'take Nina's name out your mouth for the rest of your life'This tweet from Nina Simone's estate's official Twitter account was sent out after the trailer was releasedSupporters of Simone's music and work criticized movie bosses for casting Saldana - an American of Puerto Rican and Dominican descentDozens of people blasted director Cynthia Mort and Saldana for the casting, saying it was disrespectful to darken the actress' face to play SimoneDozens more questioned why film bosses had not chosen a darker-skinned actress for Nina, seeing as her skin color was such a huge part of her life
Though Zoe Saldana is a brillant actress ,if they had to go through all tha trouble with makeup they would have used a black musician or actress to play the role.
