Black Twitter Fires Back at Accusations of ‘Black Panther’ Poster Being ‘Too Militant’

The excitement for “Black Panther” has been tainted by conservative fragility after some slammed the poster for its similarity to a Huey P. Newton photo.

When Marvel Studios unveiled the promotional image and the teaser trailer for the film Friday, June 10, comparisons between Black Panther Party leader Newton and Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa alter ego emerged.

Some Trump supporters bashed the comparison, calling the movie “violent.”

But Black Twitter quickly shut down such notions.
