they’re also whitewashing Bane in the new Batman movie.
WTF BANE, LAY OFF THE BLEACH
See this right here is why celebrity crushes are a bitch. I can (and do) just imagine myself as a reporter (because I have an imagination like that, DEAL WITH IT) sitting down with Tom Hardy and asking him, “So, what do you think if the white washing of your character Bane in the upcoming Batman movie?”
And then I just imagine all the excuses, all the defensiveness, all the colorblind BS, all the racist apologetics pouring from those beautiful lips (because I try to imagine him being all cool and conscious and anti-racist and stuff but the reality is that that is highly unlikely, when’s the last time you just randomly stumbled on a non-defensive anti-racist white guy? (Though I do hold out hope I CAN DREAM but he *did* take the white-washed role)) and it’s all terribly disappointing.
