RACHEL ZEGLER DID NOT BE SILENT, AND ANSWERED TO THE TROLLS WHO SAY THAT SHE CANNOT PLAY SNOW WHITE IN HER OWN MOVIE
Recently, it was revealed that actress Rachel Zegler will play Snow White from the film with real actors of the same name. It is yet another adaptation by Walt Disney Studios of one of their animated classics.
However, the decision to include this artist has prompted complaints from some people. The fact is that her comments through social networks sound discriminatory, and even racist.
RACHEL ZEGLER WILL PLAY SNOW WHITE IN HER LIVE-ACTION VERSION
Why is this happening? What happens is that there are those who take the Brothers Grimm version of the classic fairy tale very seriously.
In this it can be read that a queen, when pricking herself with a rose and seeing her blood fall in the snow, asked for a daughter with skin as white as this, lips red like the vital liquid and hair black like ebony. Zegler is of Colombian and Polish descent, not quite fitting that image.
The fact is that the tale of Snow White has many versions, although the Brothers Grimm is the most popular. But nothing prevents anyone from playing an imaginary character.
So Rachel Zegler was not silent, and via Twitter, she posted a message. Unfortunately, it was deleted, but not before its content spread across the Internet. It was a clear reply to those who do not accept her for this role.
THE ACTRESS RESPONDED TO THE RACIST TROLLS WHO HAVE HARASSED HER ON TWITTER
She said yes. I am Snow White. No, I’m not going to bleach my skin for the role. ‘ This is how this interpreter responds to the infamous trolls who were harassing her.
Ultimately it is silly to claim: Zegler is an actress who is doing her job, she was chosen by Disney for her attitudes and acting talent. The situation is a bit like when it was announced that her colleague Halle Bailey would play Ariel in the remake of The Little Mermaid.
At the moment only Rachel Zegler has been revealed for this new version of Snow White, which in English is known as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. It should be noted that production has not started yet.
According to plan, it will be sometime in 2022. The director in charge is Marc Webb, who previously worked on The Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel, as well as Gifted and The Only Living Boy in New York. We’ll see how she does.
