The Lone Ranger

Disney has announced that it is set to lose between $160m and $190m on The Lone Ranger.

Good!

I haven't heard much talk about this, but I am absolutely appalled that a major motion picture studio has cast a white man — I don't care if it is Johnny Depp, or if he is allegedly part Cherokee! — in the role of a Native American, especially when there is no shortage of talented Native American actors.

Essentially, Disney is producing the Native American equivalent of a minstrel show with Johnny Depp in blackface. (Redface?)

Really, Depp and Disney ought to be ashamed of themselves, and I, for one, am happy to hear that cinema goers are savvy enough to shun such offensive tripe!
