Chance the Rapper sounded off on Will Smith’s new movie “Bright” on Twitter, and he didn’t seem so into the idea of the film using fantasy to explain the racial conflict.

The Chicago rapper tweeted, “I found the way they tried to illustrate America’s racism through the mythical creatures to be a little shallow. #Brightmovie,” adding, “I always feel a lil cheated when I see allegorical racism in movies cause that racism usually stems from human emotion or tolerance but not by law or systems the way it is in real life. The characters in #Bright live in a timeline where racism is gone… cause we hate ork now.”

The film has been widely panned by critics, but Netflix has signed on for a sequel.
