John Oliver Reminds Us Just How Bad Hollywood's Whitewashing Problem Is On Last Week Tonight!

no title

Amid the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, Hollywood is being put under the microscope for its lack of minority roles!

And on Sunday's Last Week Tonight, John Oliver pointed out that even when the roles do call for non-white characters, sometimes they are still played by white actors!

In another installment of "How Is This Still A Thing?", the HBO host broke down the history of whitewashing in Hollywood, calling out films all the way from the '60s to 2016 for casting white actors to play minority characters!

The segment reminded us of Mickey Rooney's racially insensitive portrayal of a Japanese man in Breakfast at Tiffany's, all the way to Emma Stone playing a half-Chinese pilot in Aloha.

But that's not all — the clip also called out the lily white Jake Gyllenhaal's titular role in Prince of Persia: Sands Of Time.

Even newer epics like Exodus: Gods and Kings and Gods of Egypt (which is in theaters now) both had middle eastern gods, kings, and heroes being played by white actors — because producers said it would be impossible to finance otherwise!

Ch-ch-check out the funny — but sad — clip (below) to see just how bad this problem is!

Mickey Rooney's Family Fight Continues! More Legal Drama Spills Over To His Estate!

Filed under: Legal MattersR.I.P.Sad Sad

Mickey Rooney has been barely laid to rest and there's already inter-family lawsuit brewing over the late great's estate!

We reported earlier how Mickey named his stepson Mark the sole inheritor of his estate, and had previously disowned his other children!

Now, looks like his other kids are trying to go to court over his fortune (or lack thereof…he only had $18,000 in his bank account when he died), as apparently Jan, his estranged wife, thinks his will was invalid because she claims he wasn't in the right state of mind when he wrote it.

Reportedly, his daughters Kimmy Sue and Kelly Ann are getting together a legal team to investigate whether or not there are any loopholes to his will.

According to a new report, his wife and other children feel like there is a considerable amount of money to be made in residuals. While they expect hundreds of thousands, according to Mickey's lawyer, the late actor only made $20 and $25,000 a year from residuals.

We just hope all this legal drama ends soon. We hate to see a family turn against itself over money.
