Fantastic Four cast left stunned by racist, sexist interview
What is it with morning show hosts and awkward interviews?
First it was Cara Delevingne on Good Morning Sacramento, now two cast members of the new Fantastic Four film have been subjected to awkward and offensive questions from two US radio hosts.
In the frosty interview, Atlanta’s Rock 100.5 Morning Show radio hosts Steven J. Rickman and Jason Bailey start off by blasting actors Michael B. Jordan and Kate Mara for not having watched the movie.
“You haven’t [seen the film]?” Bailey said.
“You just know your scenes and that’s it?” Rickman asked. “When will you see it, or do you not see movies?”
Bailey goes on the ask the “obvious” question about how their two character could be brother and sister despite being different races.
“You’re white and black. But how does that happen? … There was no back story.”
“There’s a whole bunch of family dynamics that could be without the ‘obvious’ adoption,” Bailey responded.
Just to add to the awkwardness, Rickman asks why they even bothered making another Fantastic Four film.
