Sometimes the hate you give comes back to bite you in the ass when you catch a big break. Kian Lawley was fired from the Twentieth Century Fox film The Hate U Give after a video resurfaced of him spreading verbal one star Yelp reviews of his melanin friends. When the film company heard about the purple Kool-Aid and fried chicken comments sprinkled with N-bombs they immediately severed ties with the YouTube star. It should be common knowledge to delete all negative critiques of the same minority group that just happens to also be the subject of the social justice movie you will be starring in.

"Due to the controversy surrounding his past comments and behavior, Kian Lawley will no longer appear in The Hate U Give," a Twentieth Century Fox film rep told The Hollywood Reporter. "The studio plans to recast the role of Chris and reshoot scenes as needed."

Graduating from YouTube to film is the fantasy and fame every vlogger dreams of. But unfortunately for Kian the internet never forgets and he can forget about an acting career at the moment. His forced apology oozes of disbelief that he was actually caught and cast out from a movie pretty much destined to fail before it’s even released. It’s like being cut from the D-league in basketball, you’re not even good enough to suck with us. Hopefully the depression from losing such a huge payday doesn't lead to him doing a Tide-Pod challenge alone in his room. No worries, Walmart is always hiring when YouTube and Hollywood both don't need your services.
