Orlando Jones Fires Back at Freemantle


This week Freemantle Media denied Orlando Jones claims that his character, Mr. Nancy, had been written out of American Gods because he was a strong outspoken role model for Black people [click here if you missed that].

Orlando fires back...




Orlando also shared a video collage of the new American Gods showrunner who fired him showcasing his penchant for dressing like a Black teenager.

I just might have to go ahead and binge watch this show and see what all the drama is about. I mainly just watched Power on Starz but all these posts have piqued my interest.

I'll join R, I got the popcorn.

Random: I just finished Watchmen last night. I give it a 4 stars (out of 4).

Watchmen is the shit! I loved last week's episode and can barely wait to see the finale. Think I'll binge watch it over the holidays. Hope the few episodes I plan on watching of Amercan Gods is half as good as Watchmen—but I ain't countin' on that.

Things Orlando Jones did on American Gods: THAT!

Gained a whole new respect for him/his craft after watching his portrayal of Mr. Nancy

Definitely will not be getting my viewership, during the upcoming season.

Awwww SHIT!! Orlando is not here for ANY of their fuckery, and I am here for him calling all of it out.

Thank you O for breathing life into our ancestors. You were amazing in the role and were called by the spirits to do so.

Keep fighting. We are with you. #AngryGetsShitDone.

I am so here for Orlando putting these pale face beasts on blast, some becky troglodyte tried to come for me on youtube when I commented on the Mr Nancy video. I told that hoe writing a script and living it are two different things. This is why we need to tell our own stories, I even heard some fuckery of some caucasoid producer wanted to get Julia Roberts to play Harriet Tubman, chat bout that was a long time ago, these muthafukken troglodytes with their entitlement, privilege and false sense of superiority really think they can tell out stories better than us. These bitches better start putting some respect on all our names, Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn is here for those bitches. These goddamn soulless non melanated infant intranquil spirits running amok on our planet, with their never ending fuckery. #AngryGetsShitDone and #wWiteFatigue!!! Tired of these hoes!!!

I stand with Orlando. But like I said Mr Nancy was dropping too much truth on that show so I’m not surprised that’s he’s the first Muthafucka to go.

WELL someone WROTE IT IN THE SCRIPT and now someone WANTS IT OUT OF THE SCRIPT. What did Solange oops i mean Orlando do besides PLAY HIS ROLE? Read the script? How was the CHARACTER MR. Nancy A THREAT?

As per Solando "if he did not get rid of that angry god Mr. Nancy he’d start a Denmark Vesey uprising in this country."
He is CLEARLY delusional about what it takes to get kneegrows off the couch and out of the salons LOL

12:30PM I was about to say the same thing. Wasn't he reading a script? And if so did he write the script himself? How is he a role model for Black people if he's just playing a character? I never seen the show but I'm confused.

So now tv producers/companies can't even take their shows in the direction they want go if it means moving on from a black cast member. This guy (and Gabrielle Union) is just bitter and calculated. They're both just using racism as an excuse to cause p.r trouble, and also create cheap publicity for themselves.

@ Niyabinghi

You have truly taught me a new word with "troglodyte".
One tried to come for me on Sandra's site this week calling me a Fillipina (yes, that's how she spelledsit) and telling me to go back home. Bitch was pretending to be a black commenter but we called her lying azz out. What black woman you know describes herself this way...."I'm black and I wear 4C hair".....Chile I had to rip her dumb azz a new one. Told her I'm mixed with many things and since native American is one of them IM ALREADY HOMe! I told her to take her stupid Trumptard azz back to her planet in a galaxy far,far away. Cheeto has given these white idiots liquid courage.

Excellent show, but his part was very minor.
