The latest episode of “P-Valley” is very controversial.

“P-Valley” has become a smash hit for STARZ. The show is causing a lot of discussions on social media with its second season. Many fans of the show are very emotionally invested in Uncle Clifford and Lil Murda’s future. On the previous season, they fell for each other. However, Murda’s aspiring rap career has put him in a position where he doesn’t think he can be open about who he loves. As a rapper, he doesn’t feel like he can tell the world about Uncle Clifford without being shunned. However, Uncle Clifford doesn’t want to be publicly denied. So when Murda was cold toward her to protect his reputation after his amazing performance at the Pynk, Uncle Clifford decided it was time for her to move on.

Lil Murda is full of a lot of regrets on the current season. He realizes he didn’t make the right choice. When he attempted to go to Uncle Clifford’s home to tell her how he really feels, she refused to see him. So in the meantime, Murda feels like all he can do is show his love to her by sending postcards as he tours with Keyshawn.

Well, the recent episode definitely upset those who have been rooting for Murda and Clifford to reunite. In the episode, it was revealed that Murda has a much deeper history with his friend Big Teak than most realized. And J. Alphonse Nicholson, the actor who plays Murda, decided to speak up because some fans are conflating fiction with reality. In fact, they now believe he may be gay after a certain scene.

  1. People can be so ignorant ????. Anyway, love this show and Lil Murda is one of my favorite characters!

  2. Why are some of the fans like this? A good bit of the cast are highly trained actors with theatre experience, including J. Alphonse. Let him do his job in peace and stop being so messy!

  3. People may not want to see certain s-x scenes. But it is a way of life. I’m not gay I’m not homophobic. Grow up people it’s life.

  4. Whoever complained needs to stop being slow and do their research before they watch a show. Just don’t watch something because it trends on Twitter. P Valley is a show about a strip club being run by a non-binary person (born male) who has s-x scenes and a DL rapper boyfriend. They literally had s-x on the show last season. Gay s-x scenes are a given on this show. How do you watch a show about strippers and expect it to be wholesome?

    If you’re so triggered by two men having s-x, why are you watching P Valley in the first place? They didn’t make this show for you. You have to be slow if you think someone is gay because of an acting role. Tom Hanks played a gay man in a movie like 3 decades ago, and no one thought he was gay for real. It’s always homophobic black people doing the most. They are Christian only when it comes to black gay men apparently. Every other sin they seem fine with. Even murder since they are always on Twitter wanting murderers freed some prison. And they put the foolishness on a t-shirt.

    Anyway, I want to say that this young man is an excellent actor. It’s unfortunate that fools can’t separate fiction from reality.

  5. I didn’t mind the scene. I’m a straight woman and it actually turned me on lmbo! It is odd that some people really think this man is gay though. Kinda low IQ honestly.

  6. My goodness it is not that serious. He’s an actor doing his job and a very good job at that. Some black women think every black man is secretly gay. So annoying. I love this show. None of the scenes disturb me in any way. People need to stop being so sensitive and offended by everything. This show isn’t real. Don’t watch it if it offends you. The rest of us are enjoying the season.

  7. You don’t have to like the scene but don’t slander him and disrespect this man’s marriage.

  8. X rated.I enjoy the show. I’m Black female a Oakland native and I have never seen anything like this before. Oh I can talk mess and act a fool if I must but thank God I never have to. This show keeps me on my toes. Inner city Black People living and loving it. I just want White to know that all Black People aren’t this amusing

  9. Not surprising, I stopped watching this sh*t last season for the same reason, the gay agenda. Thanks for reaffirming my expectations.

  10. Love P-Valley He gets paid to act it’s a TV Show people need to complain about things that matter this doesn’t…are people living under a Rock like they never heard or seen anything going on and the show is on CABLE $$ with an advisory warning. If he’s believable isn’t that good Acting & Writing he goes by a script many ACTORS ACT doesn’t mean they are. Please and So What they All Grown

  11. To those appalled by the scene: Yes it is a very uncomfortable scene to look at. However, the scene is still a pivotal one. Compared to the relationship Murda has with Clifford, his relationship with Big Teak is a dysfunctional one. It pushes the audience to want a more holistic relationship between Murda and Clifford. Also those uncomfortable scenes are possible because they have a therapist on set to help the actors sort out their reservations and give the best performance possible.

  12. I remember when I was homophobic and transphobic but had no idea. I’d argue that it was okay for me to be uncomfortable. Then I wondered why I was unsuccessful and unhappy with life. When I got to the space of accepting people from different walks of life, my whole life changed. And the blessings kept coming. The best advice I can give anyone is to stop being judgmental and remember we’re all here just trying to figure out our place in this world. Have compassion and a willingness to understand those who are different from you. The golden rule is one I follow constantly now. So the scene didn’t make me uncomfortable at all. I thought it beautifully illustrated that even those who seem tough are very vulnerable and need comfort in this sometimes cruel world we live in. Love this show and all the actors are doing amazing jobs.
