NEW YORK, NY - AUGUST 28: Beyonce attends the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards at Madison Square Garden on August 28, 2016 in New York City.

Beyonce is reportedly slated to appear in three forthcoming Disney movies, including Black Panther 2, as Newsweek reports. However, some fans aren’t here for it and a Change.org petition has been created to “keep Beyonce off of Black Panther Sequel.”

“As a fan and lover of Marvel and Disney movies. I think it is with the best interests of fans and many lovers of the art. We would like to keep Beyonce out of Black Panther 2. Even though it is a great film and comic. Many others and I feel that’s her vocal and physical acting is insufficient (for lack of better words),” the petition read.

“Amidst the protests and the times we are going through, we feel like her acting sucks and can not take her seriously enough to be fully entertained by her roles in movies. We would prefer that she continues to sing and make beautiful music but as far as her acting goes and we know that she knows that her skills in theatre are not worthy of such products of entertainment produced by Marvel/Disney franchises.”

Torrence S., who created the petition, also suggests other actresses for the role, including Rihanna, Zoe Saldana, and Zoe Kravitz, among others.”For better ideas of a better actress to fill the role, we suggest that she be replaced by Rihanna, Zoe Saldana, Zoe Kravitz, or Zazie Beetz,” the petition reads.”Reasons being is because we know the movie will gross immensely but the overall turnaround for the movie will be tarnished if it is too meet the standards of its predecessor, Black Panther.”

Beyonce is reportedly in talks to sign a $100 million deal for three major projects with Disney, according to a rumor from The Sun. “Beyoncé has become a major player for Disney and is the perfect fit for their brand. She’s worked on a number of projects for them, including voicing Nala in the reboot of The Lion King, and now they’re keen to secure her for more projects,” the British newspaper’s source said.
