I was shocked when I recently learned that Peter Cullen is not actually a giant space robot! Obviously he needs to be canceled for voicing Optimus Prime in the Transformers cartoon and movies. Furthermore, did you know that Chris Farley was actually not a motivational speaker who was living in a van down by the river? By giving him this role, Saturday Night Live failed to represent the homeless community.
Since political correctness has eliminated this knowledge from the minds of so many, I am willing to risk “mansplaining” in order to help you out. Actors play something they are not. That is why it is called acting. Otherwise, it would be a documentary or reality TV. Any time you have a fictional character, the actor playing that character is not going to actually be that character.
This is why it is so silly for people like Kristen Bell, Halle Berry and Scarlett Johansson to be denied movie and TV roles because they are not of whatever “community” the character belongs to. Even the actress playing Batwoman in the eponymous TV show was attacked for not being homosexual, despite the fact that she actually is homosexual. But it has not always been that way. Hilary Swank was not a trans man when she played one in “Boys Don’t Cry” but the Left celebrated the movie anyway.
Hollywood is reeling because politically correct “standards” have rapidly changed. But Hollywood has spent decades enabling Leftist causes, and now they are reaping what they sowed.
Note for the terminally stupid: My opening paragraph was sarcasm.
