“Stop apologizing,” Maher said of Miranda’s reaction to criticism that her new movie, In the heights, does not represent more Puerto Ricans in dark colors on the screen.
“You are the guy who made the Founding Fathers black and Hispanic! I don’t think you have to apologize to Twitter.
Miranda, the film’s prodigy songwriter / lyricist / producer / co-writer, apologized in a social media post earlier this week for the lack of Afro-Latinx portrayal in the musical.
“The committee that takes note of everyone’s skin color took note of it,” Maher said.
“Do I think he really thinks he should apologize?” I do not do it ”, launched the actor on Real time. “I think he just wants to avoid the news cycle, and I don’t blame him. ”
“That’s why people hate Democrats; It’s cranky, ”the critics host Miranda said.
“I mean he’s a Latino making a Latino movie with a Latino cast. Not good enough. Nothing is ever good enough for these people. They are like children. We are not raising our children properly and this is reflected in the media. No one ever says to their children, ‘Shut up. Sit. Listen to your elders. Stop bitching. ‘ “
Maher ended with: “People are going to have to resist these bullies, because that is what bullying is. It’s “I can make you crawl like a dog and I like that”.
