Will Big Teak get in the way of Lil Murda and Uncle Clifford’s future together?
People are still talking about the recent episode of “P-Valley.” On the episode, Lil Murda continued to think about Uncle Clifford. He’s been sending her postcards from every city he visits while touring with Keyshawn. And Keyshawn is the only person he’s been confiding in about his feelings. As their friendship continues to grow, Murda’s longtime friend Big Teak is also around. He was recently released from prison. While that hasn’t been an easy thing to adjust to, Teak is also struggling with issues that are affecting the black community. In particular, injustice triggers him plenty. He’s greatly moved and angry when he learns of incidents of police brutality.
After Teak has a very emotional breakdown, it’s Murda who steps up to comfort him. However, some fans were shocked about how he chose to console Teak. They ended up sleeping together. And it seems as if Murda and Teak have a very long romantic history that Teak hoped would hold up while he was in prison.
For some “P-Valley” fans, they were upset about the scene because they are rooting for Murda to make things right with Clifford. However, others took to social media to complain. They said the onscreen moment was way too much and made them uncomfortable. Others accused actor J. Alphonse Nicholson (Lil Murda) of being gay in real life even though he has a wife.
J. Alphonse Nicholson responded to the criticism.
Well, Nicholson noticed these comments. So he took to Twitter to respond.
In a tweet, he wrote, “The love is real, the hate is real. As an actor, the ultimate goal is to be as believable as possible. Relaxed, precise, fierce. Although @PValleySTARZ is a fictional story, I’m grateful for the conversations that are being had. Job well done. #PValley #LILMURDA #steadygrind”
Interestingly enough, other “P-Valley” fans felt like the backlash wasn’t equal. They pointed out that Mercedes also had a steamy scene with Coach’s wife. However, that s*x scene didn’t generate nearly the same amount of complaints and threats to stop watching the show.
