Zoe Saldana can’t catch a break!

The actress has been the center of a social media firestorm since the trailer for her upcoming biopic Nina dropped, in which she dons much darker skin to better resemble Nina Simone.

And apparently, the late singer is rolling over and igniting Twitter feuds in her grave — because whoever runs Simone’s verified account for her estate SLAMMED Saldana on the social media site!

On Wednesday, the 37-year-old quoted the music icon in which she plays in the upcoming film about having no fear:

This quote could very well be in reference to the backlash she’s been getting over her darkened appearance in the poster.

But whoever runs Nina’s account wasn’t having it — and ordered the actress to refrain from ever speaking about Nina again:

That might be a problem for Zoe when she has to talk about the film during her press junket!

While the Avatar star didn’t necessarily have the last word, she did throw some shade back by sharing the film’s poster — with her darkened face front and center:

Well, this is certainly a first. We’ve never encountered a Twitter feud where one of the parties no longer has a pulse.

Nina’s estate is just defending the late legend’s honor, but we think trying to silence the actress who is portraying her on screen and sharing her story is a bit counterproductive to their cause.

What do YOU think?
