With #OSCARSSOWHITE trending and the Academy Awards busy reformulating the ballot rules for its judiciary members, is it at all surprising that it was announced that Joseph Fiennes (who is not black), will be portraying Michael Jackson?!
The yet-to-be released UK Television dramedy follows the lives of Jackson, Marlon Brando and Elizabeth Taylor as the trio jettison off on a road trip, post 9-11.
What is going on here?!
You're telling me that there isn't ONE BLACK PERSON TO PORTRAY Michael Jackson? Not one, in this entire world? This is too much! #Ridiculousnessrunamok
