Casting Call for Queen
"She is brown-skinned, if she were a slave she would've worked in the fields, she has a tough exterior for a reason."
Queen is played by Jodie Turner-Smith.
The movie is written by Lena Waithe.
Chrissie’s new video about Queen&Slim sent meeeee. The casting directors really asked for a “field slave” looking black woman 😂 Am I really surprised at how messy and poorly thought out this movie was https://t.co/UyHUlmkiU7— Nina-Grace (@TgwtR) June 27, 2019
"if she was a slave, she would have worked in the fields" was in the casting call description for the role of Queen. That makes me not want to watch this. CUT THAT BULLSHIT OUT. 😠— Black Ranger (@CoonTrapLL) June 27, 2019
