Queen Latifah is no fan of movie classic Gone With the Wind. The rapper-turned-actress disagreed with the decision by HBO Max bosses to reinstate Gone With the Wind following a massive backlash.

HBO removed Gone With the Wind from its movie lineup earlier this month following weeks of Black Lives Matter protests and unrest around the country.

But many criticized the streaming giant's decision to ban the classic 1939 film that depicted the horrors of the Civil War.

Filmmaker Spike Lee urged HBO Max bosses to reconsider and now the film will return to the site's lineup with an introduction from Jacqueline Stewart, a Black Cinema and Media Studies professor at the University of Chicago in Illinois.

But Latifah, who portrayed Gone With the Wind star Hattie McDaniel in Ryan Murphy's Netflix hit Hollywood, feels viewers should also be educated on the racial prejudice McDaniel endured, even as she made history for winning the Academy Award.

"They didn't even let her in the theater until right before she got that award. Someone came outside and brought her into the auditorium. She wasn't even allowed to sit in there.

"And then she had to read a speech that was written by a studio. You know that's not what the hell she wanted to say... Then after that, all she could do was play the same kinds of roles..., so the opportunities at that time and the way that those in power in that business were relegating us and marginalizing us and not allowing us to grow and thrive after that was just terrible. And a lot of that is still around today."

Vivica A. Fox reacted angrily to the news that Issa Rae intends to remake the hit all-female bank heist movie Set It Off. Vivica, pictured left, told Issa to "create your own franchise" as she responded to the news that the Insecure star is working on a reboot of her 1996 crime drama.

A young Vivica, pictured 2nd from right, starred alongside Jada Pinkett Smith, far right, Queen Latifah, far left, and Kimberly Elise, 2nd from left, in the original film, about a group of female friends who use insider information to rob Los Angeles banks.

Despite the demand for a remake of the urban classic, a Set It Off sequel was never made.

According to WENN.com, Issa, 34, is in the early stages of developing a new version of the film but, when asked about the prospect by Entertainment Tonight, Vivica was less than enthusiastic of the remake plan.

"It's a classic, leave it alone," the 55-year-old actress responded, bluntly. "There's absolutely no reason to try to redo it. It's been done, and we did it so well, that people are absolutely going to compare it to that and I think that's her taking on a tremendous chore because that film has become a cult classic and some things are just better left."

Vivica said Issa will face a massive backlash if she gets the reboot wrong: "Like, create your own franchise. If you want to do a new film of girls robbing banks, create your own thing. You can make it up to date. We did that film in 1996. We are in 2019, going into 2020. So, create your own thing because people are absolutely going to compare it to it, and she'll probably, if it's not good, they're going to slay her for it."
