Zoe Kravitz Calls Out Hulu for Lack of Diversity After High Fidelity's Cancellation



Zoe Kravitz paid tribute to her recently canceled hulu series High Fidelity on Instagram saying in part “thank you to everyone who watched, loved and supported us. #breakupssuck.”

In response to Tessa Thompson's condolences, Kravitz responded “It’s cool. At least Hulu has a ton of other shows starring women of color we can watch. Oh wait.”

Hulu did not respond to requests for comment.

On an episode of iHeartRadio’s “The Big Ticket” podcast earlier this year, Kravitz had spoken about the fan feedback she’d gotten about representation on “High Fidelity:”

“The amount of comments, DMs, things on Twitter, articles written about Brown women who love music, were afraid of commitment, who’ve never seen a person like them on television — they feel seen for the first time. I have a friend who — one of his best friends loves punk music and is gay — it’s like, ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe I’m watching a gay man in a Minor Threat shirt. I’ve never seen that before.’ Just breaking away from the stereotypes, I feel like people need that. So I feel very lucky to have been able to deliver that...and in a lot of ways this was a love letter to New York with all its messiness and diversity.”
