John Boyega, who recently covered the latest issue of GQ Magazine, called out hit HBO series “Game of Thrones” for its lack of diversity.
In his interview with GQ, the “Star Wars” actor complained about how there were no black people in Game of Thrones, and neither was there in “Lord of the Rings”.
The actor said:
There are no black people on Game of Thrones. You don’t see one black person in Lord of the Rings. I ain’t paying money to always see one type of person on-screen.
You see different people from different backgrounds, different cultures, every day. Even if you’re a racist, you have to live with that. We can ruffle up some feathers.
