Whoopi Goldberg Shades Director Wes Anderson For Not Casting Enough Minorities! Do U Agree???

Whoopi Goldberg calls out director Wes Anderson! Do U agree with her?

One thing we love about Whoopi Goldberg is that she's NEVER afraid to speak her mind — even when the subject is a bit controversial!

Adam Scott and Jason Schwartzman swung by The View this morning to talk a bit about their upcoming movie The Overnight!

But before they left, Whoopi decided to grill Jason on his longtime collaborator, director Wes Anderson!

The 59-year-old EGOT winner asked Schwartzman to pass along her résumé to the director, teasing:

"I want to do this right because I love all the Wes Anderson movies that you starred—like, almost all of them, from Grand Budapest Hotel and Rushmore and all of those. So, I noticed there's not a lot of folks of color and I thought I would like to give you my résumé to give to Wes Anderson just to let him know I'm available."

Dang! Was Whoopi just kidding? Raven-Symoné seemed to think so, as she added:

"She won't do full-frontal nudity."

To which Whoopi actually said she would! Ha!

Srsly though, the poor representation of minorities in film really is a problem, as last year's Oscar nominations were a pretty glaring example.

But if we look at last year's nominees for Best Picture, the ONLY movie other than Selma to have a minority actor in a starring role was actually Anderson's Grand Budapest Hotel (Tony Revolori played main character Zero)!

Even in his first film, Bottle Rocket, Wes had Mexican actress Lumi Cavazos in one of leading roles as Inez! Brazilian musician Seu Jorge acted in and provided a TON of the music for The Life Aquatic, and American Indian actor Waris Ahluwalia was featuring in both The Darjeeling Limited and Grand Budapest!

That being said, Anderson classics Rushmore and Moonrise Kingdom are comprised of almost ENTIRELY white casts!

Minority representation in film is DEFINITELY big issue in Hollywood right now! But do U agree with Whoopi that Wes Anderson is one of the directors to blame??

Lance Bass — an openly gay man — is calling Chris Brown OUT for his consistent hate-filled comments concerning homosexuals.

Breezy recently got into a fight with gay singer Frank Ocean over a parking situation and reportedly called him the f-word.

Chris has also used the word in his lyrics AND allegedly spat it at the papz back in 2011.

SO ignorant. Such a lazy and cruel use of language.

The former *NSYNC member recently expressed his opinion on Chris' use of the contentious word, expressing:
