Read The Room: Alexandra Shipp Invokes X-Men Colorism Controversy Again



Shipp has being called out repeatedly for dismissing criticisms of colorism in the casting of Storm.
She has once again made some X-Men/Storm-related comments that haven't gone over too well.
Shipp presented her idea for a hypothetical Storm film featuring only lighter-skinned actresses.

"Okay, so this is what I've come up with. I think it'd be really cool if you had me and Halle both teaming up together and fighting a baddie. We have to save the planet past, future, present and maybe throw in Yara in there, and have her be a young one, or Amandla be the younger one. I think it'd be even cooler. So I feel like we just gotta get a whole bunch of Storms together, because then people will just be like, 'Oh my God, that's so much Storm.'"
