“I don’t want to hear what a white man has to say about ‘A Wrinkle in Time.’ I want to hear what a woman of color or a biracial woman has to say about the film. I want to hear what teenagers think about the film.”
I like movies with strong female leads like Wonder Woman. It's the accompanying BS that Larson put out there that will prevent me from watching her movie. It's the lack of tolerance from Hollywood and the "tolerant left" that really gets me.
Agree 100%. Just act and keep your mouth shut.
