Kimberly Elise trended on Twitter after she celebrated the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade federal law last week.
The 55-year-old actress is best known for her roles in Tyler Perry’s Diary of a Mad Black Woman and the bank heist chick flick Set It Off. But she is not winning any new fans with her stance on the controversial Supreme Court decision.
On Tuesday, Elise posted an animation on Instagram depicting a baby and a Bible quote. In the caption, Elise wrote, “Millions of babies will be saved from death by abortion due to the overturning of Roe V. Wade. Hallelujah!” She used the hashtag #allglorybetoGod.
One upset Twitter user wrote: “Kimberly Elise was literally in For Colored Girls.. need I remind her of the abortion plot point???”
Elise starred in the 2010 film, For Colored Girls, alongside Kerry Washington, Whoopi Goldberg and Janet Jackson.
But others defended the actress.
“Kimberly Elise has an opinion & view that’s unique to her…Some people will agree & others will disagree, we don’t have the same views on anything. But let’s not act like y’all ain’t gonna watch Diary of a mad black woman moment it comes on tv again,” writer J.C. tweeted

Folks are saying Kimberly Elise can have an opinion.
Your opinion should only govern you. Celebrating policy that revokes the rights of millions is not an opinion; it’s bad politics.
No one cares about your opinion. It’s your politics that’s a problem.

Kimberly Elise is entitled to her fq'd up opinion…. but this has solidified her only acting in z list movies. Her and Kirk Cameron will be making the same Jesus movies…that only vacation Bible school watches for the rest of their lives

Kimberly Elise is being attacked because she is a Black woman who is pro-life.
To the libs, we’re nothing but “niggers” if we aren’t liberals.
I was never called that word my entire life until I ran as a Republican.
Now it’s a daily thing.
Kimberly, don’t bend & stay strong!
