Many people reacted when the pictures made the internet rounds of a caucasian Joseph Fiennes playing the role of Michael Jackson in a British film, “Urban Myths.”
It tells the imagining of a true story that occurred just after 9/11 when Michael Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor, and Marlon Brando took a road trip after flights were grounded.
Elizabeth Taylor is played by Stockard Channing, and Marlon Brando is played by Brian Cox, but it was the Joseph Fiennes as Michael Jackson casting that drew the ire of the public, including that of Michael Jackson’s own daughter, Paris Jackson.
@TheMJCast i’m so incredibly offended by it, as i’m sure plenty of people are as well, and it honestly makes me want to vomit.
