CELEBRITY Apologies

In recent years, the general population has become more and more aware of the whitewashing that goes on in Hollywood. White actors are cast to play non-white characters, straight actors are cast in gay roles, and cisgender actors often get to portray the few trans characters we see on our screens. Awareness and unease has been rising for a long time, but the outrage has reached a fever pitch as of late. Many actors are now looking back at their careers and seeing how their choices took opportunities away from those whose voices have long been silenced, and took representation away from those who desperately need it.

It's hard to turn a blind eye anymore, and actor apologies are at an all-time high as we grow as a society. Some actors are even apologizing simply because their movies sucked! Click through this gallery to see which roles led actors to make public apologies.
