What is up with Faizon Love and Spike Lee? We have to admit that we didn’t see this one coming. The comedian is calling the iconic director a “house n*gga”

If you’re wondering why Love is going in so hard on Lee it’s because as far as the outspoken comedian is concerned, the iconic director is a “house n*gga.”

“Oh, he’s a house nigga for sure. He’s been a house nigga for years, trust me,” Love told the Hot 97’s “Ebro in the Morning” show.

When he asked what exactly he meant by that, Love referred to Lee playing the role of “Shorty” in the 1992 movie “Malcolm X” that he also directed.

“Look at him. You don’t do a movie like ‘Malcolm X’ and put yourself in as the jibbering comedy relief,” Love to Ebro. “They didn’t do Schinzler’s List and say, ‘Hey were going to put a little comedy in here’. They do it for real.”

Ebro appeared to be taken aback about Love’s assessment of the legendary director, as did Laura Stylez and Peter Rosenberg, who agreed that the particular role Love was talking about was controversial, but insinuated that he wouldn’t take it as far as to call him a “house n***a.” Lee has been known to make art of America’s discourse on race, in ways which blacks living with the experience of oppression tend to identify with. He has also made it a focus of his career to dramatize the stories of Black heroes and to document events that have impacted the Black community.

  1. It is very sad when other black actors talk about/Each other and put each other down, We are an very Enriched people, we are creative and very intelligent, because we have an/intelligent God!
    to see Mr/ Love talking about Spike and putting him down. with so few in Holly/white/ Hollywood. they need to put their Resources together. and/help some of these young black and brown men get out of prison? ask yourself why is Mr. love talking negative about someone who is the same color as himself/ furthermore I’m so tired of other blacks putting others down/ it is sad it is Disrespectful!

  2. Y’all killing me with these comments, faizon should have kept has mouth closed and stuffed it with some wings, calling spike a house N, FAIZON FYI, YOUR IRRELEVANT A NON- MOTHER F’N FACTOR!

    Azz shape like a Q-Tip.

  3. You guys are hilarious…
    Before your trash Faizon because he hasn’t been as successful as Spike Lee, let’s remember a few things:

    1. It was Spike Lee who attached Tyler Perry because Tyler Perry was making more money and more successful then him.Saying Perry shouldn’t be making the money he’s making becaus Perry isn’t a degreed film maker like him.

    2. Spike Lee also did the Malcolm X movie and then turned the ending over to the “other man” to finish off the movie in insinuating the Nation of Islam had Malcolm killed.

    What I’m saying to you is that Spike Lee has a ton of questionable behavior and just because someone doesn’t have the same amount of money as another doesn’t mean that what he says shouldn’t be considered the truth.

    Your not “right” just because you have money. Trump has more money then most and we are talking about him everyday.

    I rest my case.

    One movie doesn’t make one a house n—–, its what your actions portray in real life. Why attack each other at celebrity status. Samuel L. Jackson, have play negative black movie’s, but that is not his real life as a man.

    Spike has given opportunities to many black actors/actresses just has Mr. Cosby has, people who we may have never known had it not been for their generosity. What has Fatson Love done for anyone other than himself? So if Spike is a house n****a, he must be a sambo shuckin’ & jivin’ with those pink rollers in his hair selling poisonous dope to his people. Some people need to STFD and STHU.

  7. Huge difference between Spike Lee and Faison Love. Spike does whatever he can to raise money and put people to work. Faison simply takes whatever work he can get. Faison needs to stfu until he gets a production company, becomes a creator, and does something for other people instead of his own fat ass.
