Ava DuVernay is to meet a woman who is accused of belittling a young black man by cutting off his clothes before she leave nuclear … so says the child himself.
We spoke with Kobe Richardson on Saturday at the Crushers Club in Chicago – the same place that received $ 200,000 from Meek Mill but quickly came under fire this week after an old photo
. Sally – and even tries to play a peacemaker between her and Ava, who Kobe thinks is not very different, despite intense fervor – up Friday. Kobe also makes it clear once again … the decision to cut the locks was his, not Sally's.
ICYMI … a photo of Sally's locks being cut became viral news that Meek donates to a nonprofit. Many people shouted badly, suggesting that the place was not worthy of Meek's money … as many felt Sally and her association body were racially insensitive .
What really ticked people off was Sally's caption with the picture that said … "And another crusher allowed me to cut through his horrors! This is a symbol of change and their desire for a better life! "
This wipes out tons of people – including the famous film director and TV producer , Ava – the wrong way … and Sally quickly issued a photo sharing measure all those years. But even Sally's apology came under attack and Ava launched the #LocLife campaign as a result … calling on blacks to share their love for their locks and disable Sally.
Well, Kobe says that Ava and co. he has a misconception about the woman … and he even attributes his life to her, saying that he would probably be in prison or dead if it wasn't for the help of Sally and the Droders Club. He says he was shot 14 times before messing with CC.
As for Ava, he thinks she and Sally actually have a lot more in common than Ava might think … and he says she should meet with Sally to see the good work she is doing for herself.
It is not clear if this will happen or not. The perturbation machine seems to have left its mark on this one, but let's hope that Kobe's olive branch here can change some thoughts.
