Recently, Disney was having trouble casting someone to play the roles of Jasmine and Aladdin in the upcoming live-action remake.
Naomi Scott is going to play Jasmine, Will Smith is going to play Genie, and to play Aladdin… We have Canadian actor Mena Massoud from Markham, Ontario.
But people have some issues with the choices, mainly with Naomi Scott being “too white” to play Jasmine.
people attacking naomi for being half Indian but they wanted avan jogia for aladdin and he's also half Indian lmao— salma (@sunflowerbecks) July 15, 2017
It seems like half of the people that are angry about this are mostly mad that Jade from Fifth Harmony wasn’t chosen for the role of Jasmine.
It’s important to note that a lot more goes into casting than simply what these people look like… But still.
What do you think about their choices?
