      Jess was not white. He was of color. Only uninformed people think he was white. It says so in the bible.

      • Jasmine April 2, 2018

        Jesus not Jess.

    • SMH April 2, 2018

      Still waiting to hear the answer to that question of why John Legend playing Jesus is “laughable”….

    the twitter reviews for the most part were atrocious. john legend was a boring Jesus.

    He is undoubtedly talented but just not the greatest performer in terms of being engaging

    • Jasmine April 2, 2018

      Twitter reviews? Lol. Umm ok

    • Jasmine April 2, 2018

      What did the real reviews say!? The ppl that actually matter gave it good reviews.

      • StarXavi April 2, 2018

        Well ultimately, public opinion is what matters….the audience matters.

      • Jasmine April 2, 2018

        Most of the world is NOT on twitter. So umm yeah, reality check

    • SMH April 2, 2018

      Lmao seriously, twitter reviews? Lmao.

      • King z April 2, 2018

        “The people who really matter” are the viewers at home – the twitter users

        Doesn’t matter if paid critics gave it 4 stars, if the overwhelming majority of general public disagree then thats who NBC CARES ABOUT

      • Jasmine April 2, 2018

        The majority of viewers at home are not on twitter. You are overvaluing twitter.
