Green Book producer says the movie was intended for "older, white people"



In no shit news, Jonathon King, producer of Green Book said they made the movie for old, white people. He said, "the audience for that kind of movie is largely older and largely white. If you believe that older white people don’t need to be told to be less racist anymore because that’s an issue from the past, look around. Because they do. Occasionally you need to make a movie that is directed at older white people." He then went on to say that criticism of Peter Farrelly, the director and admitted sexual harasser, aren't fair because you could never find a director that would properly represent "the lives and lived experiences of those two main characters."
