Latest snowflake outrage

different Countries, different attitudes.
I don't care who provides the voice for Dr. Hibbert on the Simpsons - it's just a cartoon after all, but Anne Boleyn wasn't black and to pretend that she was and cast "a person of colour" to play her in a movie is just wrong. If the moviemaker can't get that bit right, then it doesn't speak very well about the accuracy of the rest of the story. {They do know that Anne Boleyn had her head chopped off at the pleasure of the king, right?}

It's a bit sexist to assume that Anne Boleyn was a woman too, shouldn't they have got a black bloke to play the part

I don't really care who plays what.
The object of acting is to entertain and tell a story and suspend reality.
I would rather that someone is chosen to play a part because of ability and not as a political statement however.

Talking of political statements, I wonder if Henry will have to take the knee to Anne Boleyn

And which Queen will Lewis Hamilton being playing?
