I wasn’t gonna speak on this bum but fuck him and his lies.. I won’t sit back and let this guy try to slander or bully me any longer. Truth is @duskopoppington is not a true independent artist or business man like he tries to pretend to be.. He was HIRED by @muddfilms to “Direct” the film #thelist originally as a “celebrity” Director. I was the producer of the film and asked to ensure that it actually got made by ghost directing certain aspects. Dame has no idea what directing a movie actually is or takes and was constantly yelling at crew members/cast, berating people on set, smoking weed and basically sleeping at the wheel. 🤒 Then while in the process of finishing the film, Dame was being a hot head with the studio executive producer/financier stepping out of line and finally got FIRED!! 🤡 ⌛️ I was approached to finish the job by directing the movie to completion and attached my company to help in its formal release. Really simple to understand. Everyone involved knows the truth especially our core cast @brianjwhite @claudiajordan @officialcshort #honorablepeoplesticktogether. This happened a long time ago already. He just mad because we about to put it out finally and had him cut out the movie entirely like the sucker he is. Dame is only sour because he put himself in a position to lose like he has done so many times in previous business’s. 🎙 He is only mad at himself for being an idiot and looking for someone to blame so he screams “Culture Vulture” Grow up! Don’t try and make this a race thing! #keepitmovingdummy #nobodycares #youmadbro @funkflex said it best #damedashisaliar and is the true #culturevulture, look up his history.. 👊🏼 @xxl @bet @vanlathan @tmz @entertainmenttonight @enews #damedash #ceobeef
