‘2 more white guys? I’m out’! Diversi-tools cry foul over new True Detective stars

, , , ,


Cue the asplosions!

With the announcement that season 2 of “True Detective” will star Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn, HBO has cemented its status as the home for white male supremacy:

@KatMcKinley There's a segment of the internet that is upset that True Detective season 2 will be starred by two white (straight) guys.

HBO should just change its name to KKK, are we right?

Two white male actors cast in season 2 of True Detective? You don't say…

— Matthew A. Cherry (@MatthewACherry) September 23, 2014

More white men. Yay. RT @MichaelAusiello: It's official: COLIN FARRELL AND VINCE VAUGHN confirmed for Season 2 of TRUE DETECTIVE.

Maybe in the next season of True Detective, Colin Farrell & Vince Vaughn can solve the mystery of the missing female and non-white actors

True Detective literally reinvents itself after a season and STILL the leads are two white men? what a shame.

— MOLOCH THE LOVELESS (@MochineGun) September 23, 2014

Two more middle aged white guys as leads? Oh, #TrueDetective you are truly VANGUARD television!

Disappointing news that Rachel McAdams (or a woman in general) isn't starring in season 2 of #TrueDetective. Two white dudes again? Boring.

True Detective replaced 2 white male actors with… 2 white male actors. WAY TO GO.

So True Detective's gonna have two more old white dudes. Great.

— Lily Stanicek (@lilystanicek) September 23, 2014

I don't really have a horse in this race as I didn't like the first season of True Detective but isn't it awfully white maley?

— Hannahlily Angus (@IdaLupinoThings) September 23, 2014

Wow. You'd think it'd kill the people behind true detective to hire anyone other than white straight guys?

— Laura M (@sdlauram) September 23, 2014

Oh good they managed to find two more white dudes to be on True Detective.

— Maria M (@MariaMelee) September 23, 2014
