50 Cent and Jada Pinkett Smith have no "California Love" for Tupac biopic 

ABC/Fred LeeThe highly-anticipated Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez on Me is finally in theaters.  

But 50 Cent and Jada Pinkett Smith, who's portrayed in the movie by actress Kat Graham, are hopping mad about the film's depiction of the late rap icon and, in Jada's case, its depiction of her friendship with Pac. 

On his Instagram account, 50 gave a damning review of the movie, writing, "Man I watched the 2 PAC film, that was some b*******. Catch that s*** on a fire stick trust me. LOL SMH TRASH." 

Jada also seems very disappointed, calling the movie "deeply hurtful." 

"Forgive me...my relationship to Pac is too precious to me for the scenes in All Eyez On Me to stand as truth," she tweeted

After listing several events in the film that she says never happened in real life between her and Tupac, she tweeted Graham and Demetrius Shipp Jr., who portrays Pac, telling them, "This is no fault of yours. Thank you for bringing so much heart and spirit to your roles."  

Jada adds, "You both did a beautiful job with what you were given. Thank you both," before wishing Pac happy birthday. He would have turned 46 this Friday. 

Jada and 50 aren't the only ones who have an issue with director Benny Boom's movie.  

As previously reported, John Singleton, who originally signed on to direct it, dropped out of the project and claimed that he wasn't able to make the movie that he felt his slain friend deserved. 

Recently, Benny responded to Singleton's claims, telling ABC Radio that the latter "had every opportunity and chance" to make his own Tupac film, regardless of his issues with producers.
