Bill Maher tells Lin-Manuel Miranda to stand up to bullies on “In the Heights” – .

Bill Maher has some advice for Lin-Manuel Miranda… stop apologizing to bullies who enjoy making people crawl like a shameful dog with every move they make.

Miranda is taking heat for her movie “In the Heights,” a film about the Washington Heights area of ​​New York. He was dragged out because the case did not have Afro-Latinx representation.

The point is… the cast has Latinx artists, a black track, but, as Bill says, “the committee” is outraged that the cast’s complexion is somehow off.

Miranda surrendered, saying, “I’m so sorry. I learn from comments. Thank you for raising it and I am listening to you. I promise to do better in my future projects. “

Bill was incredulous… “You are the guy who made the Founding Fathers black and Hispanic!” I don’t think you have to apologize to Twitter. Maher doesn’t believe Miranda really thinks an apology is in order… “I think he just wants to avoid the news cycle, and I don’t blame him,” adding, “That’s why people hate them. democrats; it’s cranky. “

Maher wasn’t done… “People are going to have to stand up to these bullies, because that’s what bullying is. It’s “I can make you crawl like a dog and I like that”.

And then the host of “Real Time” went to kill… “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, fuck. Sit. Listen to your elders. Stop bitching. ‘ “

By the way … the movie scored 96% on Rotten Tomatoes.
