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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

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

    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

    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.

    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.
