Last week the official poster for the up and coming Noel Clarke film 18.104.22.168 debuted online, which I later featured on Mad News.
I also asked Noel a question regarding the poster which surprisingly didn’t seem to go down too well. He didn’t take to kindly to being questioned about the decision to feature one actress on the poster, clad only in underwear.

Since then I have received emails from his supporters criticizing me for “calling Noel out like that” (erm all I did was ask the man a question), I’ve been called “negative”, “petty”, a “waste gyal” (LOL) and a “f**king hater”.
I long for the day when the Americans come up with a word to replace the now overused “hater”, so us Brits can then have a new word to beat to death.
Anyway I had no idea that a question would generate so much anger and verbal abuse.
But I have since learned my lesson.
I am after all, just a lowly working class South London (“the endz”) chick who happens to run a blog .
WHO AM I to question BAFTA award-winning/Dr Who star Noel Clarke?
WHO AM I to question this great man, who has single handedly dragged a community out of the job centre and opened doors for so many black actors/actresses across the land?
I am a nobody within the elitist and “oh so luvvie” world of UK showbiz.
22.214.171.124 will open in cinemas nationwide on June 2nd.
