Neither. The whole ageist, racist and sexist thing. She said she doesn't want "40 year old white dudes" opinions about a Wrinkle in Time because it isn't made for them. She also doesn't want to be interviewed by white men and she spoke about the supposed patriarchy. I just want to get a discussion going. No hate on this thread, though. That would be nice.Just so I'm clear, which controversy are you referring to?
The smiling thing, or the love interest?
I agree. The camps both arguing about how they should either watch the movie to stick it to the patriarchy or complaining about it because of SJWs just feels like a repeat of the Ghostbusters 2016 situation.She mainly just said she wanted to interviewed by more minorities. I don’t care either way. It seems to me that publications and programs would need to be the ones to hire more minorities in the first place rather than some actress demanding “send in more brown people”. Or better yet, she could have arranged for such interviews and just done them. But virtue signaling and “making a stand” makes for more headlines.
She’s pretty cringey to listen to though. Honestly seems like the studio put her up to that and now she’s just awkwardly defending herself.
Agreed. I'm getting sick of politics.I agree. The camps both arguing about how they should either watch the movie to stick it to the patriarchy or complaining about it because of SJWs just feels like a repeat of the Ghostbusters 2016 situation.
Fair enough. I understand that. Thats definitely her intent. although the comment about the patriarchy was...I think everyone's blowing what she's saying WAY out of proportion. Basically she just wishes for more diversity in interviewers and such. She doesn't want white people to hate Wrinkle in Time (I'm white and I loved it. Didn't read the book), just that if white dudes didn't like it, that's OK, you weren't the primary audience. That's my take on her. Also, I wouldn't kick her out of bed.... for eating crackers.
