Thanks to Vice, I believe there’s a documentary available on almost every topic imaginable. I don’t think triple transracial pronoun-free twink transitioning into a productive member of society exists yet, but I have hope. Vice probably already has an entire sub-series somewhere on the internet dedicated to the Charleston church shooting because opinions on race, religion, and murder combined are inherently edgy, but that didn’t stop an actress and an NBA player from teaming up and doing their own documentary on the incident. Steph Curry and Viola Davis are working together to create a film that no one will watch on purpose, unless they plan to make it available for free on Netflix.

Steph Curry has teamed up with Viola Davis to make a documentary about the 2015 church shooting in Charleston in which 9 African Americans were killed.

The movie is called "Emanuel" -- named after the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in South Carolina.

The victims had been participating in a bible study session when then 21-year-old white supremacist Dylann Roof walked in and opened fire.

According to Curry's production company, Unanimous Media, the documentary "features intimate interviews with survivors and family members who were left to grapple with this senseless act of terror."

The movie is being promoted as a "poignant story of justice and faith, love and hate, and the healing power of forgiveness."

The creation of this documentary is entirely too obvious. Curry only cares about the project because he’s black and really into Jesus. I’m sensing that he’ll somehow slip in “turn the other cheek” undertones throughout the film. Neither party would have winked had Dylan Roof chose a Mosque full of white muslims. If that even exists. I think Lindsay Lohan is the only one on record so far. And most people’s mood when it comes to Lindsay is the same as Ivan Drago’s, if she dies, she dies. Just kidding. If Lindsay had met her demise at the hands of Dylan Roof we would all collectively send thoughts and prayers, because we care.
