Beyonce won't have anything to do with any sort of Saartjie Baartman movie.
Rumors have been swirling this past week that Beyonce was reportedly set to be writing & starring in a movie about Saartjie Baartman, a South African woman who was displayed in London freak shows during the 1800s and nicknamed "Hottentot Venus" because of her large bottom and body shape. Well it turns out, this alleged story happens to be another case of an internet troll job, because Bey’s reps have quickly shut down the rumors.
According to Billboard, a rep for Beyonce says, "Beyoncé is in no way tied to this project. This is an important story that should be told, however."
