Here's what Twitter users had to say about Vue Cinemas banning 'The Blue Story Movie'
Author: Wardah Sempa | Sunday 24th November 2019
Today, Vue Cinemas confirmed that Blue Story will no longer be showing in any of its 91 outlets in the UK and Ireland. Police were called to Star City in Birmingham on Saturday evening following reports of youths with machetes.
A 13-year-old girl and four other teenagers have been arrested following the mass brawl involving up to 100 youths, which left seven police officers injured. Twitter users took to Twitter to share their thoughts...
So are you banning every movie that was screening at that time or just Blue Story.— Tolly (@tolly_t) November 24, 2019
Do you lot know how exhausting you make life for us. @vuecinemas

If the fight broke out during Frozen 2 why has Vue Cinema banned Blue Story from all its venues?— Hanna Ines Flint (@HannaFlint) November 24, 2019

They banned Blue Story coz they wanted to. They were looking for any excuse. Too many black people for them. This is no different from what they’ve tried to do to grime, rap and whatever else the mandem have created off their own back. But the mandem will ALWAYS persevere and win— Skribz (@OfficialSkribz) November 24, 2019
So wait. A bunch of Asian kids start “riots” in star city brum, apparently linked with the release of (predominantly black) blue story, at that Vue branch. In response, Vue has banned said film from all 91 branches? Is this serious??— raya (@rayviewz) November 24, 2019
They only banned the blue story cause they hate to see a black man win @RealRapman they can’t stop what’s written keep doing your thing— Rimzee - 2 Do 1 [Out Now] (@TheRealRimzee) November 24, 2019
If ODEON's social media was smart, they would use this opportunity to go absolutely hard in promoting coming to watch Blue Story at ODEON cinemas. This is the easiest layup for them— Tonte (@TalkWithTonte) November 24, 2019
NOPE @vuecinemas this isn’t how you handle a problem. Punishing and erasing a work of art over an isolated an unrelated incident demonstrates hysterical, reckless discrimination. These kids weren’t even old enough to see Blue Story and were there for Frozen 2. Reinstate the film. https://t.co/CL5y3uew4a— Jameela Jamil 🌈 (@jameelajamil) November 24, 2019

This Blue Story and Vue thing is racist.— jackie burkhart (@Oloni) November 24, 2019
Our member @umarkankiya with our support would like @vuecinemas to answers to their alleged removal of @BlueStoryMovie by @RealRapman from their cinemas nationwide.— DopeBlackDads (@dopeblackdads) November 24, 2019
We will not tolerate black art being suppressed and await their swift response. pic.twitter.com/c2zY4TWxY0
