Earlier this week, British novelist Anthony Horowitz revealed his unpopular casting opinions about who should play James Bond after Daniel Craig leaves the series!
After receiving a ton of backlash, some of which accused the 60-year-old’s words to be racially loaded, Horowitz issued an apology, posting on his Twitter:
While not everyone is going to accept the author’s apology, Elba himself responded to the controversy the classiest way possible! He shared on Instagram:
Always Keep Smiling!! It takes no energy and never hurts! Learned that from the Street!! ├░┼╕╦£┬Å #septemberstillloveyouA photo posted by Idris Elba (@idriselba) on Sep 1, 2015 at 3:30pm PDT
That’s a pretty suave response, if you ask us!
Do YOU think Elba would make a good 007?
