It seems like just over night, the Zola story has taken social media by storm. If you have been living under a rock, the Zola story is a series of 150 tweets that tells one previously-unknown woman’s story of stripping, tricking, murder and everything in between. After going viral, some of the characters mentioned – like Jess, affectionately known as “The White B*tch,” and her crazy boyfriend Jarrett – are denying the accuracy in the story – but that’s to be expected when you’re painted in the light that they were.
Regardless, Zola is being offered movie deals and merchandise plans and naturally, she’s doing what any smart person would do here – capitalizing off of it. Zola recently appeared on TMZ where she addressed Jess’ allegations, who reaches out to her name how she plans to make money off of “hoeism.” Check out the interview below.
In the meantime – both Keke Palmer and Draya have joked that they’d take on the role of Zola (as fans have been nominating them since reading the story,) and even acclaimed director Ava DuVernay applauded Zola‘s storytelling capabilities.
