Woke Mob Forces 89-Year-Old Rita Moreno To Walk Back “In the Heights” Whitewashing Defense

Rita Moreno has walked back her recent defense of Lin-Manuel Miranda amid accusations of whitewashing in his latest film In the Heights — writing that she is “incredibly disappointed” in herself. “While making a statement in defense of Lin-Manuel Miranda on the Colbert Show last night, I was clearly dismissive of black lives that matter in our Latin community,” she wrote in a Thursday tweet. “It is so easy to forget how celebration for some is lament for others.”

When everything becomes racism, racism will no longer exist.
