Liberal Actor John Leguizamo Goes Full Woke and Slams James Franco’s Casting as Fidel Castro in New Movie

No thank you, Franco. On FridayJohn Leguizamo took to Instagram to call out the entertainment industry for casting yet another white actor in the role of an explicitly non-white character. The reproach followed the news that James Franco would portray infamous Cuban dictator Fidel Castro in the upcoming film “Alina of Cuba.” “How is this still going on? How is Hollywood excluding us but stealing our narratives as well? No more appropriation Hollywood and streamers!” the “Encanto” star wrote of the decision to give the role to Franco, 44, who is of Jewish, Portuguese and Swedish descent.

I’m guessing that a wokester like Leguizamo probably hated Al Pacino being cast as Tony Montana is “Scarface” too.
