Unfriended two people on facebook today for supporting the writing of hate mail directly to Finn Jones, because he dared accept being cast as the Iron Fist.

I would have been supportive if the PTB had made the character of Asian descent (as long as it didn't go into another trite "finding your roots" storyline. No point to adding diversity if you screw it up with stereotype). I sort of understand the disappointment, even if I find it weird to build your soapbox on the ground of a white guy being cast as white, but to channel that disappointment into actively trying to spread hatred towards Jones, instead of focusing on the casting panel, is despicable.

Yes. At best, Finn Jones could decline the part (but probably not now) and we could get another white guy. Send mail to the casting people and writers about having more diverse leads. (Also, for the love of Stan Lee, be critical, but polite.)
