Keke Palmer, 19, has been cast to play Chilli in the forthcoming TLC biopic. However, the decision hasn’t been met with all smiles. People have been complaining about the decision because Palmer doesn’t look like Chilli.
“People kill me, I don’t remember Angela Bassett looking ANYTHING like Tina Turner. And she RIPPED that role…People need to realize that movies aren’t casted by people looking like who they’re playing. They’re casted by who can do the role,” she Tweeted.
But she’s not going to let that stop her. Palmer also tweeted that she had been a TLC fan since she was a little girl and can’t wait to make them proud.
