religion is one of the worst things to happen to black folks.
they take that shit and run into a whole field of contradictions.
i thought brandon t. jackson was so fine.
he had me open in “lottery ticket“.
he is a black hebrew isrealite who claims his career took a hit because of sin.
you’ll never guess what it was via “tmz“…
Brandon T. Jackson says he was on “thin ice” with God for playing a gay character in “Tropic Thunder” … but says wearing a dress in “Big Mommas” was worse for him.
Jackson famously played Alpa Chino in the 2008 Ben Stiller flick — a closeted actor who accidentally revealed feelings for a guy named “Lance” … it was a hilarious scene.
But, Jackson is now a pretty religious Black Hebrew Israelite — and playing gay doesn’t jive with his religious beliefs.
“I was on thin ice then with the father,” Jackson said on “TMZ Live” … “But, he had his mercy and his grace was there.”
Jackson says the bigger issue is when he wore a women’s dress for his role in the 2011 Martin Lawrence flick, “Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son.”
Jackson says he broke a religious law prohibiting men from wearing women’s clothing — “And, when you break a law you get punished.”
So, what went wrong? Jackson says his career and his personal life took a serious hit and he even uses the word “curse.”
“If you don’t follow all the commandments that the Torah says to do, you’ll be cursed.”
