Not sure why we’re supposed to worship the dead thug, hip-hopper Christopher “Biggie Smalls” Wallace a/k/a “The Notorious B.I.G.” Is it because he’s a fat guy who was successful?

Either way, the best part of “Notorious “–the movie, out today, that whitewashes and glorifies this sleazebag–was when Wallace was shot and killed.

I'm not going to see the movie. I don't care much for it, and I'm black. But this woman has a problem. There's no point in slandering a dead guy in such a way.

I'd rather listen to any sleaze than her.

I can't remember whom they were talking about recently on tv--someone who died--when they said you can basically say anything you want about dead people and you can't be sued for it.

As for when will Hollywood stop...they'll stop when stupid people quit creating a demand for it by buying it.

thugs? is that your only argument, look at the kinda of movies that were and are created.

hollywood is full of crackheads, over the counter drug addicts, hollywood is one one big circus.
i dont consider the movie your talking about a hollywood flick because there have and always will be thug-street gangsta movies that make it to the big screen and isnt hollywood.

if your gonna protest and speak out about this movie which i havent seen and dont care to, grotesque the other mafia, and violent movies hollywood makes,

whats with the glorification there

I always wonder about the cognitive dissonance exhibited by posters who rant against Hollywood for giving the public WHAT IT WANTS, ie; what sells. But then in their next post will rail that Limbaugh, Hannity and O'Reilly MUST BE RIGHT because THE "MARKET" HAS SPOKEN.

My advice to the OP and the person who wrote the link is; GET A LIFE.

Well I for one can't stand any Italian mafia thug movie or any movie glorifying thugs of any kind. But yes, Hollywood is an open sewer that needs to be shut down or cleaned up.
