Michelle Rodriguez Says Minority Actors to "Stop Stealing" White Superhero Roles

Furious 7 star, Michlle Rodriguez says that minority actors should "stop stealing" white superhero roles.

In the last ten years more and more roles have been given to minorities instead of white actors including Michael B. Jordan as the Human Torch, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. But, it looks as though not everyone enjoys having diversity in TV and film. Michelle Rodriguez, who will co-star in the upcoming Furious 7 movie told TMZ that minority actors should have their own characters instead of playing white characters.
Michelle Rodriguez has a different take in the lack of diversity in Hollywood ... she thinks it's ridiculous to make things right by making superheros less white. Rodriguez was cruising out of Katsuya Friday night when she shot down rumors she's in talks to play the Green Lantern ... while also throwing shade at minorities who play white superheroes. [TMZ]
Michelle would later issue an apology video on Facebook directed towards anyone who took offense to her comments. She then offered up a more detailed explanation of what she was trying to say. Most recently her co-star on the upcoming Furious 7 feature film, Tyrese has been campaigning via Facebook and Twitter for the lead role of Green Lantern. She is probably sick of hearing Tyrese arguing for a role on the next Green Lantern movie. TyreseDiscuss this story with fellow Project Casting fans on Facebook.
