Chance the Rapper has some thoughts about ‘Bright,’ Will Smith’s new Netflix film

Bright , starring Will Smith, hasn’t been received well by critics, including Chance the Rapper.

The movie, which is streaming on Netflix and currently has a 28 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes , is ” Training Day meets Lord of the Rings ,” as Smith described it. It was directed by David Ayer — the same dude who helmed Suicide Squad .

One critique that keeps popping up is how it deals with issues like racism, and on Tuesday, Chance had something to say about it.

“I found the way they tried to illustrate America’s racism through the mythical creatures to be a little shallow,” the rapper tweeted, before diving a bit deeper into the film.

I always feel a lil cheated when I see allegorical racism in movies cause that racism usually stems from human emotion or tolerance but not by law or systems the way it is in real life. The characters in #Bright live in a timeline where racism is gone… cause we hate ork now ��

“I always feel a lil cheated when I see allegorical racism in movies cause that racism usually stems from human emotion or tolerance but not by law or systems the way it is in real life,” Chance wrote on Twitter.

Folks began stepping in with their own thoughts about the movie. One person addressed the “indirect relationship of orcs to black people.”

If I had to complain about anything…. it’s about the indirect relationship of orcs to black people. That was weird to me.

I think the idea is that they’re a step below bottom of the spectrum blackness. Which is why Will’s character, the Mexican cop and the ork have that dialogue in the street. https://t.co/LaFMysw2WG

Another fan asked if making connections to the very real racism of the world was a stretch of the imagination, or if it was just an attempt at an “interesting story.” During the press tour for the film, Smith has discussed about how the movie is about race, but Chance also shared his thoughts.

“I tried to look at it that way but a few minutes into the movie they make Will’s character say ‘Fairy Lives don’t Matter,'” Chance tweeted, which obviously is a reference to Black Lives Matter, the very real movement for equal rights.
