Meanwhile, Jesse Williams was in the news recently for slamming Hollywood for its historic need to whitewash ethic characters.
In a recent interview with Hunger Magazine, the “Grey’s Anatomy” actor spoke about recent controversial castings and noted that ALL WHITE EVERYTHING is totally unnecessary in 2017.
“People thought that they had to whitewash every movie to make people go and see it, but that’s statistically bulls–t. The more diverse a movie is the more money it makes — statistically,” he said, according to Entertainment Tonight.
Several recent movies have caused controversy in casting white actors in minority roles, including “Ghost in the Shell,” “The Great Wall,” and “Dr. Strange.”
Politically outspoken Williams is the youngest member of the board of directors at The Advancement Project, a civil rights think tank and advocacy group. During his chat with Hunger, he explains how he found his political voice.
“I dedicated my life to doing (civil rights activism) anyway and now I’ve just added another job to that, which is being on television and in films,” he told Hunger magazine. “I didn’t wake up one day and think, ‘Hey, I’ve got this platform now, what can I do with it?’”
