John Boyega isn't feeling Spike Lee's "She's Gotta Have It" after peeping a scene about black British actors. Here's what he said inside....

Season 2 of Spike Lee's "She's Gotta Have It" was released over the weekend and it's already stirring up controversy.

SPOILER ALERT! If you haven't watched the entire season, you may want to stop reading here.

There's one scene where the writers tackled a hot topic in the black community that's causing drama online. Nola Darling (played by DeWanda Wise) is chatting it up with her British born BAE Olumide Owoye (played Michael Luwoye) about the difference between Black British actors and Black American actors. In the clip, Nola explains to him why Black Brits seemingly get cast more for Black American roles.

"[Black British actors] need to fall back and fall away from taking all of our roles, like we have dope, talented, trained, qualified black actors right here in the States," Nola said. "But at the end of the day, black Brits just come cheaper."


"I agree somewhat," Olumide responded. But black British actors are better suited than black American actors for Stateside roles because they don’t carry the burden of f****d up black American history, of lynching, slavery, Jim Crow, all that."

"You just have Stockholm syndrome and fell in love with your captors," Nola responded.


By the way, Michael Luwoye is getting dragged on social media for his not-so-perfect British accent.

Star Wars actor John Boyega - who is an English actor - caught wind of the clip and simply titled it "Trash."



And he's not the only one feeling some type of way about the scene:
