VUE CINEMAS ANGERS FANS BY BANNING ‘BLUE STORY’ FROM ALL VENUES 

The ban comes after a disturbance at the Star City complex in Birmingham allegedly during a Frozen 2 screening, the youths were armed with machetes and the mass brawl involved up to a 100 youths. However criticism has come due to the fact that the disturbance was unrelated to the ‘Blue Story’ screening.

Fans on twitter have called to boycott the chain and Vue have been accused of racism. The chain has yet to address the issue directly as to why ‘blue story’ in particular was banned and instead they released the following statement “We regret that we will no longer be screening the film Blue Story at any of our venues. Should you have a booking for this film, please say cancellation when prompted and a member of our team will be with you shortly to assist you with your booking. The safety and welfare of our customers and staff is always our first priority.”

You can however still catch the London set movie at Odeon, Cineworld and Picture House.

 

ZEPH ELLIS CALLS OUT JAY1 FOR NOT COUGHING UP FOR HIS PRODUCTION FEE

Zeph Ellis more commonly known as ‘Dot Rotten’ called out Jay1 on social media this week, on his Instagram account Zeph directed shots at Jay1 on how he didn’t credit him for the beat or invite him to the video shoot and now Jay1 doesn’t want to release the tune and pay the 15k production fee.

Seems that Jay1 invited Steel Banglez to the shoot but not Zeph and didnt credit Zeph for the production. Credit where credit is due and I agree with Zeph on this one. Catch Zephs full explanation of the situation below and tell us your thoughts on the matter over on our twitter https://twitter.com/HardestbarsUK?s=20
