Lifetime was the talk of the Web yet again last night during the premiere of the Angela Bassett-directed Whitney biopic. Detailing the controversial relationship of the late Whitney Houston and her ex-husband Bobby Brown, the actress’ directorial debut was up for much debate. While the perception of the film wholly positive – especially in comparison to the criticism of the Aaliyah: Princess Of R&B film – Twitter and Instagram managed to point out its flaws and sing its praises.
As naysayers were displeased with fictional Bobby Brown’s camera time, Houston’s drug use depiction and the family’s lack of support for the biopic, the memes began rolling in even before YaYa DaCosta’s final scene. Meanwhile, other users couldn’t wait to throw shade Wendy Williams’ way. Missed the premiere of Whitney last night? Allow these posts to catch you up.
