When we are looking for a controversy to ensue, we always know we can count on a young lady named Candace Owens to fill the order!
There have been rumblings regarding the news of Black actress Jodie Turner-Smith being selected to play the role of King Henry VIII of England’s second wife, Anne Boleyn in a project for U.K.’s Channel 5. White people are outraged that a Black woman was selected to play the part of a white woman. The three-part miniseries is being called a “propulsive psychological thriller, told from a new perspective.”
The controversial conservative is known for stirring people up with her commentary, specifically when it comes to anything having to do with Black people. She chimed in last week with a Twitter post.
I’m actually totally fine with Jodie Turner playing the role of Anne Boleyn so long as the radical left promises to keep their mouth shut if in the future Henry Caville is selected to play Barack Obama and Rachel McAdams can play Michelle.
Not double standards- K? https://t.co/t1flg1az1w

Candace, can you say anything without right wing propaganda coming out of your mouth ? And hate to break it to you, but your approval isn’t needed on anything.

Let’s make sure the “no double standard” rule applies should BLM storm the capital one day. No special committee, no thorough investigation – K? 🙄

Oh, sure Candace, the Right has been playing the game for a long time.

White people have been playing people of color for over 100 years. So I think there there’s a bit of catching up to do.

White people have been playing people of ALL colors since the birth of cinema. https://t.co/rkZwAjL1o4
