The Lionsgate film studio is apologizing for casting too many White people in their upcoming movie “Gods of Egypt.”
Apparently their casting decision hurt the feelings of non-Whites.
Totally pathetic that they would apologize for this. Perhaps Whites should start whining about how there aren’t enough Whites being cast in Spike Lee films.
Alex Proyas and Lionsgate address controversy that’s flared up over film starring Gerard Butler and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as ancient Egyptian characters.
Director Alex Proyas and Lionsgate, the studio behind “Gods of Egypt,” have come out and apologized after the film’s casting prompted online outcries.
The fantasy epic came under fire after placing white actors like Gerard Butler, Brenton Thwaites and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in the roles of gods and mortals who set off on an adventure in ancient Egypt.
“The process of casting a movie has many complicated variables, but it is clear that our casting choices should have been more diverse,” Proyas said in a statement obtained by TheWrap. “I sincerely apologize to those who are offended by the decisions we made.”
