White woman upset over Booksmart underperforming, blame studio-backed film with diverse cast




Very white Vanity Fair Senior editor Joanna Robinson took to Twitter to lament that the coming of age film Booksmart is underperforming. Who is to blame, you say? Certainly not the film distributor but rather competition from a film backed by a major studio with a primarily non-white cast, of course!

After people called her out on her overdramatic tweet, she quickly issued an

apology

but not before doubling down on how radically different this "white girls coming of age" story is because one of the leads is plus size and there's queer representation, y'all!!!




Some reponses to this very qwhite nonsense under the cut:

What are some of your favorite coming of age films featuring non-white female protagonist, ONTD?
