And here are some of the casting choices for the Riverdale series. Those girls on the bottom are the new Josie and the Pussycats because of course they are. Also, Reggie is Asian now. And Jughead is one of the Sprouse twins.
I strongly recall only one Black lady in the Pussycats. Or was I high?
Nope you were right, there was only one: Valerie. As I recall she broke some ground as the character too. But now they’re all black because reasons.
Just to generate controversy like the Spiderman hullabaloo.
Exec #1: “Quick! How can we generate some free press for our show without actually having to write anything compelling?” Exec #2: “Randomly make a canonically white character black and then overstate how upset people are about it and shout down anyone who criticizes us as a racist?” Exec #3: “Brilliant!”
