Dec 14 - Why Orlando Jones got fired from American Gods:
 

 
White people basically scared of his role - an intelligent, angry, Black God who was kicking knowledge to the people. Spooky.

In the scene below, Mr. Nancy (the black God) tells enslaved people on a slave ship what they are in for in America. Spooky.

Yo.. He was awesome in American God's. He was spitting that hot fire. Excellent performance.

Side note: did anyone else feel like season 2 was a bit preachy? I was watching it feeling like I wasn't the intended audience.

It's crazy too because they have a VERY explicit gay s*x scene in the show, and they had no problem with that, but an African God talking about the atrocities our people have suffered is "too much"?

Its fu*ked up but its dumb to a*sume he was fired over his role when most likely the ppl with the power to fire him also had a part in writing the story line

I was about to say the same thing. It's not like Orlando Jones wrote and directed the scene himself.

He wrote that part. He was a writer in the show and I'm not a*suming. I'm gong off what he said.

Plus The scene posted in the OP was from season 1 like 2 years ago

Edit just watched the twitter vid and Jones said the show has a new owner and that owner gave him the axe... fu*ked up

Mannnn.. I've seen two threads about this and finally decided to click on that scene. Maybe it's the way ya commenting about it and hyping but it wasn't that powerful to me, acting wise and what was said ��.

Where's the logic here? He got fired for saying basic sh*t we already know? If he wrote it and it was a problem, why air it in the first place just to fire him for his character being too scary for white people? Did they k*ll his character off? Is this his best Monologue?


Now if he broke down key moments in history with details, for example Greenwood and the black wall street then I'll be like he spitting some sh*t that isn't really spoken about and educating certain folks. Even then I'll still ask how they allowed it to air if it was such a problem ��

Even if he wrote it you think the ppl who had the power to fire him gonna allow him to write and perform a scene they dont want on the show then film it and use it in the show lol ?
