Bill Maher had some harsh words for the critics of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s new film during his talk show Friday, according to Deadline.
Miranda’s new film, “In the Heights“, has received criticism for not including enough darkly-colored Afro-Latino characters.
In response, Miranda apologized on social media.
“I hear that without sufficient dark-skinned Afro-Latino representation, the work feels extractive of the community we wanted so much to represent with pride and joy. In trying to paint a mosaic of this community, we fell short. I’m truly sorry,” wrote Miranda.
