WHY IS A WHITE EUROPEAN MAN PLAYING A BLACK AMERICAN?

Joseph Fiennes has been cast as Michael Jackson in a British film about an alleged road trip the King of Pop took post-9/11. The road trip supposedly had Jackson, Marlon Brando, and Elizabeth Taylor in a rental car, driving from New York to Ohio.

As the premier Michael Jackson fan site, I feel Pajiba needs to say something about this.

WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK IS EVEN HAPPENING RIGHT HERE? PEOPLE ARE BOYCOTTING THE OSCARS BECAUSE OF A LACK OF NOMINATIONS AND DIVERSITY AND BRITAIN’S SKY ARTS CHANNEL, OR WHATEVER IT IS, DECIDES TO CAST A WHITE BRIT AS A BLACK AMERICAN?!?!?!

I CANNOT EVEN WITH THIS NEWS RIGHT NOW.
