Trailers for Ice Cube's 'Friday After Next' film - which opens in theaters on Friday - have angered the outspoken North Carolina minister who might be best known for his criticism of rapper Eminem. Reverend Paul Scott says the Friday After Next commercials are offensive because the spots use what he describes as derogatory terms to describe women.
Scott is calling for the commercials to be taken off television, stating, "This is not the image of black women that I want my daughter to see. It is not only disrespectful to black women but the black community, as a whole."
Scott, the head of the Durham, North Carolina-based New Righteous Movement, said in August that Eminem's success is a sign that whites will take over hip-hop in the same manner they took over jazz and rock and roll. Scott has also made headlines criticizing BET, Phat Boy Malt Liquor advertising, and the hiring of white actors to play Jesus.
