Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan told a crowd on Saturday at a protest in Los Angeles, California, that Hollywood must “commit to black hiring” in the wake of the death of George Floyd, and suggested that Hollywood is “policing” black “storytelling.”
“I want us to invest in black staff,” said Jordan of Hollywood, adding that while he uses his platform to “demand diversity,” it is now time for Hollywood to take action. “You committed to a 50/50 gender parity in 2020,” continued the actor. “Where is the challenge to commit to black hiring? Black content led by black executives, black consultants.”
“Are you policing our storytelling as well?” added Jordan, who played a black man killed by a police officer in the 2013 film Fruitvale Station.
