Neo-nazi group the National White Alliance has launched another broadside against Hollywood over the rebooted version of “Hellboy.” White British actor Ed Skrein recently turned down a role in the film after fan criticism. Skrein was set to play Ben Daimio, who is Asian in the comic books.
“Skrein, who declined an interview request, said in a statement that when he accepted the role, he was unaware that the character of Ben Daimio was of Asian heritage. He said the casting announcement caused ‘understandable upset’ and ‘intense conversation’ that prompted him to do what he felt was right,” said Variety.
But the National White Alliance thinks Skrein is a victim of PC run amok.
“This shows how difficult life is becoming for attractive, white male actors in Hollywood,” said Brian Blanc, president of the National White Alliance. “It’s really a slow form of white genocide and shows how the liberals are waging war against white men.”
However, a letter to the Salt Lake Tribune blasted white men, like the white nationalist protesters in Charlottesville, complaining about being marginalized.
“People of European heritage are doing just fine in the world. They run most of the world’s institutions, hold much of the world’s wealth, replicate as frequently as other humans. You’re not in any danger here,” said Jonna Ramey.
