'Bunheads' Lacks Diversity? Creator Defends Against Casting Criticism
Bunheads was criticized earlier this week by Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes, who said that she doesn’t feel right letting her children watch the show sinceBunheads doesn’t contain any actors of color.
“Hey @abcfbunheads: really? You couldn’t cast even ONE young dancer of color so I could feel good about my kid watching this show? NOT ONE?"Is diversity the actual issue here for Rhimes? Should whites or Asians or <insert other here> be offended by Tyler Perry's films? What factors determine whether or not racial ubiquity in a piece (visual, literary, audio etc.) is inappropriate?“Look, I’m not going to get into a pissing match with Shonda Rhimes because she has 15,000 shows on the air, and she’s doing just fine for herself…. [But] I’ve always felt that women, in a general sense, have never supported other women the way they should…I think it’s a shame, but to me, it is what it is…. I wouldn’t do it… I wouldn’t go after another woman. I, frankly, wouldn’t go after another showrunner.”
