Despite execs at Warner Bros. giving a remake of Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner‘s 1992 film, ‘The Bodyguard,’ two thumbs up (as we reported here), fans of the ‘I Will Always Love You’ diva have been everything except in love with the announcement.

Taking to Twitter in droves, commenters slammed the news – with some arguing its untouchable soundtrack couldn’t be replicated while others cited Houston and Costner’s on-screen chemistry as the reason the classic movie shouldn’t be updated.

As the debate raged on about the forthcoming, Matthew Lopez-penned reboot, our friends at TMZ caught up with the late Pop icon’s ex-husband Bobby Brown for his two cents on the matter.  His response came as a surprise to no one.

Don Lemon has got to be feeling sour as he takes a look at his Twitter mentions, even days after the drama between he and Rap Queen Nicki Minaj reached a boiling point.

As has been reported all week, Minaj has been in the center of global criticism due to her stance on the COVID-19 vaccine – a stance, mind you, that’s earned detraction from fellow celebrities, public health leaders, political figures, and many more.

While social analysts have been taking to their respective platforms to debate the matter (namely Nicki’s comments about stalling on getting the vaccine until she does ‘more research’), Lemon – a longtime anchor for CNN – turned heads when he said:

“The people talking about, ‘I don’t know what’s in the shot’ … You know what they get shots in nowadays? In their rear ends, they’re getting shots to make it bigger. They’re getting shots in their face. They don’t know what’s in Botox. You don’t have to listen to a minority of people who are being harmful to the greater good and who are not acting on logic, reason, and science.”

Needless to say, once the commentary got to the GRAMMY nominee’s desk she responded with an epic roast.  What’s more, her fans – affectionately called Barbz – are continuing what she started.
