Will You Join The Boycott 'Exodus' Movement?
In case you haven't heard, there's a "Boycott 'Exodus'" movement on social media right now. Fox is getting on the Biblical movie bandwagon, and releasing, this Christmas, "Exodus: Gods and Kings," directed by Ridley Scott, and starring Christian Bale as Moses, Joel Edgerton, Arron Paul, John Turturro, Ben Kingsley and Sigourney Weaver. And of course the first thing that you notice is that there are no black people, or POC in the cast.
Well, actually, that’s not exactly true. There’s Kingsley (whose real name is Krishna Pandit Bhanji, the son of an Indian Ismali Muslim, and an English mother); and, as you can see in the image above, there are black people in the film - as slaves and servants.
I don't care. You know how I will boycott? NOT SEEING THE MOVIE.
