Michelle Rodriguez has found herself in a bit of controversy lately.
The Fast & Furious star called out Hollywood for casting minorities in superhero roles that were originally made for white people. She said:
I think it’s so stupid… because of this whole, like, ‘minorities in Hollywood’ thing… it’s so stupid, it’s, like, stop stealing all the white people’s superheroes. Make up your own, you know what I’m saying? What’s up with that?
Rodriguez later apologized in a video:
What I really meant was that…I think there are many cultures in Hollywood that are not white and that can come up with their own mythology. It doesn’t matter what culture you come from. I’m just saying that instead of trying to turn a girl character into a guy or instead of trying to turn a white character into a black character or a Latin character, I think that people should stop being lazy and people should actually make an effort in Hollywood to develop their own mythology.
What do you think about Michelle’s comments?
Since Rancic’s controversial comment about Zendaya, she’s been silent in fear she’ll receive more backlash. TMZ reports her daughter Melissa Rivers is doing everything in her power to keep her mom’s legacy alive.
The show will reportedly cover lifestyle and topical issues. Will you be tuning in?
Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson sat through a very awkward interview in a hilarious SNL skit.
The actress was asked uncomfortable questions by none other than a middle school student. You try explaining those steamy scenes to a tween. Watch the clip here.
