Minority slams obsession with 'diversity' in comics; quickly 'clarifies' due to SJW whining

Michelle Rodriguez of Fast and the Furious and Machete fame, says her possibly playing the Green Lantern is "the dumbest thing [she's] ever heard."

"I think it's so stupid because of this whole minorities in Hollywood thing. It's so stupid. Stop stealing all the white people's superheroes. Make up your own. You know what I am saying? What's up with that?"

But, as Douglas Ernst points out, the social justice warrior (SJW) hordes must have been out in force quickly thereafter, as Rodriguez later added the following on Facebook:

Hey guys, I want to clarify about my comment yesterday. I stuck my foot in my mouth once again. I said that people should stop trying to steal white peopleís superheroes. I guess it got taken out of context because a lot of people got offended or whatever. I have a tendency to, you know, speak without a filter ó sorry about that. What I really meant was that ultimately at the end of the day thereís a language and the language that you speak in Hollywood is Ďsuccessful franchise.í

I think that there are many cultures in Hollywood that are not white that can come up with their own mythologies. We all get it from the same reservoir of life, the fountain of life. It doesnít matter what culture you come from. Iím just saying that instead of trying to turn a girl character into a guy ó or instead of trying to turn a white character into a black character or latin character I think that people should stop being lazy. People should actually make an effort in Hollywood to develop their own mythology. Itís time to stop. Stop trying to take whatís already there and try to fit a culture into it. I think that itís time for us to write our own mythology and our own story. Every culture. Thatís what I really meant, and Iím sorry if it came off rude or stupid. Thatís not what I meant. So, cheers.

Doug (rightly) says, "When Ms. Rodriguez apologizes for speaking without a filter, what she really means is 'Iím sorry for telling the truth.'Ē

Before the usual SJWs get on Michelle too harshly, they should know -- if they don't already -- that she is an open bisexual.

Then again, knowing idiot SJWs as I do, that means zilch. Rodriguez should be prepared to be called a "self-hating bi," an "Aunt Tom" and whatever other filth the heinously self-righteous SJW pricks routinely throw against those who dare to veer from their rigidly enforced orthodoxy.
