Default Controversy as black actress plays white cat

The trailer for the live-action version of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical smash dropped on Thursday night, and now many fans who have viewed it say Francesca’s fur not matching her skin tone is an example of ‘racism’.

‘Whitewashing’ is a term that refers to Hollywood’s long history of sidelining black actors and preferring to cast mostly white leads in films.

https://www.thesun.co.uk/tvandshowbi...-whitewashing/

Should whiting up be allowed even if it’s a cat?

TBH.

It smacks of a trashy tabloid trying to stir up outrage.

Strewth, is this what the world of today has to offer.
Stupidity for the sake of it.
It would be hilarious if it wasn’t so barmy.

This.

The only time that I've seen racism for this kinda thing was the Last Airbender Film as it's clearly based around Asian culture so having a white Aang just doesn't feel right.

But going back to the topic, who seriously cares who is playing which Cat?
