It’s no secret that the family of Nina Simone is NOT thrilled with Zoe Saldana’s portrayal of the late singer in the upcoming ‘Nina’ biopic — but now Nina’s verified Twitter account is throwing shade.
Zoe Saldana tweeted a Nina Simone quote in response to the backlash she’s been receiving over the movie…
"I'll tell you what freedom is to me- No Fear… I mean really, no fear." #NinaSimone

…and Nina clapped back.
.@zoesaldana Cool story but please take Nina's name out your mouth. For the rest of your life.
