Zoë Kravitz calls out Hulu on a lack of diversity following the cancellation of her show High Fidelity after just one season.
What We Know:
- Zoë Kravitz starred in a Hulu adaption of the 2000s romantic comedy High Fidelity starring John Cusack and her mom, Lisa Bonet. The series was a reimagination of the original movie where Zoë Kravitz played the role of John Cusack.
- The Hulu series starred Zoë Kravitz, Jake Lacy, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, and many others. However, the streaming service recently canceled the show after just one season.
- Following news of the cancellation, Zoë went to her Instagram to thank her cast family. In the Instagram post, she wrote, “I wanna give a shout out to my #highfidelity family. thank you for all the love and heart you put into this show. I’m in awe of all of you. and thank you to everyone who watched, loved, and supported us. ✌🏽 #breakupssuck”
- Many celebrities shared their disappointment in the comments including Tessa Thompson who wrote “I will miss you alllllllllllll so much.” Zoë responded to the comment saying, “It’s cool. At least Hulu has a ton of other shows starring women of color we can watch. Oh, wait.”
- Hulu has yet to respond to the comment; however, the lack of Hulu originals starring women of color is clear and indisputable.
Zoë Kravitz and fans of the show alike are sad to see the series go so quickly. Hopefully, Hulu responds to the racial bias claims and help viewers understand the reasoning behind the unprecedented cancellation.
