'Straight Outta Compton' Casting Call Under Fire

by G H posted Jul 18 2014 2:45PM
The studio and filmmakers behind the N.W.A biopic are distancing themselves from a casting call sent out earlier this week. Universal Pictures said in a statement "the filmmakers... did not approve and do not condone the information in this casting notice. We regret and sincerely apologize for being in any way associated with the offensive descriptions it contained."

The casting call, sent out by Sande Allesi Casting which you can find here, looked for four classes of women ranging from “A Girls” to “D Girls.” The description for A Girls stated “these are the hottest of the hottest. Models. MUST have real hair. You can be black, white, asian, hispanic, mid eastern, or mixed race too,” while the description for D Girls was for “African American girls. Poor, not in good shape. Medium to dark skin tone.”
The Facebook posting has since been deleted. What are your feelings on this? Let us know in the comments below and read more here.
