Zola and Jessica

The bizarre Twitter tale that took the internet by storm last week is rumored to be heading to a TV screen or movie theater near you….but the author wants to make sure her story is told true to form.

In case you haven’t heard about the potential come-up-story of the year, here’s a quick recap. Twitter user and former stripper Aziah King had no idea that her allegedly “true” account of an extremely wild night in Florida with a few new friends would captivate the internet the way that it did, but now that it has, she’s reportedly considering offers to cash in on her new-found internet fame.

The story has even spawned this hilarious parody trailer.


Aziah’s story (appropriately titled “Zola”) has dominated pop culture for the last week or so, grabbing the attention of everyone from mainstream media outlets to the likes of award-winning Hollywood director Ava DuVernay and plenty of others. But while Aziah has welcomed the attention and is even rumored to be in talks with major networks about how to bring her messy masterpiece to life, she was quick to warn potential filmmakers against whitewashing her story when an entertainment website tweeted out a caption referencing it with an accompanying photo of 4 white actresses.


Although the photo attached to the tweet sent out by the publication is one from an already-created movie starring the young actresses pictured, we can’t help but side with Aziah and find her potential casting concerns very valid given Hollywood’s track record.

Hopefully the got the message loud and clear.

    I found the Twitter account very entertaining, but I will not be paying to see this in the theaters.

  • VoiceofReason

    Her account of the story is being disputed.

  • FreshMom

    I thought her writing was good. Kept me on the edge of my seat.

    Foolishness at its best. Is this the only type of crap we find entertaining? Couldn’t make it past the first few sentences.

    Her writing did keep me enthralled. Don’t know if I would see a movie version of this. I think when I read it, I didn’t think it was real, so maybe enjoyed it a bit more. She should definitely keep at the writing, because she is very good at it. There are many authors now in the ‘urban fic ‘ genre who started off as drug dealers, prostitutes, etc, and some even wrote their stories while in jail. So hopefully she channels some of that energy into that and screenwriting, because she is talented. It is scary to me though that many women live that type of lifestyle though.
