Looks like the commies in China aren’t done being finished with John Boyega. The Hollywood Reporter tells us:
The ‘Star Wars’ actor was replaced with Chinese star Liu Haoran.
Jo Malone London, the British perfume and scented candle brand, has issued an apology to John Boyega — who was last year named its first male global ambassador — for the “offense” it caused when it reshot a personal video he made for them that not only cut out the Star Wars actor entirely but didn’t feature a single black individual.
The new ad, made for the Chinese market, kept major elements of the script of the first, but replaced Boyega with local actor Liu Haoran (star of the hugely popular Detective Chinatown film franchise). The Hollywood Reporter understands that Boyega — who conceived and directed the first film — wasn’t made aware of the new commercial’s production, and only found out after it was put on Twitter.
“We deeply apologize for what, on our end, was a mistake in the local execution of the John Boyega campaign,” Jo Malone London said in a statement sent to THR. “John is a tremendous artist with great personal vision and direction. The concept for the film was based on John’s personal experiences and should not have been replicated.”
If only the communists in China felt the same way.
In a previous recent interview on video with GQ, John Boyega responded to the interviewer at about the 10:08 mark:
Interviewer: I think it was really important for you to say, I don’t know if I’m going to have a career at the end of this, and I think for what people to hear that, to know that kind of, you know, as black people you internalize, you can’t talk about this stuff…
John: I think also, a lot of people would be like, pfff, you know, Hollywood is full of you know, the lefties, treehuggers, you know, Hollywood is full of that, so they love it. That’s not my experience of what Hollywood is about man. Correct yourself. You ain’t had my experience.
At some point John may want to consider the possibility that the racists he had experiences with in Hollywood, are the lefties and the treehuggers. Because it doesn’t get much further left than the communist Chinese, and birds of a feather flock together.
