As we reported here, fans of Hulu’s Zoe Kravitz-led TV adaptation of the hit 2000 romantic comedy, ‘High Fidelity,’ were highly disappointed at news the series had been canceled after just one season.
Kravitz initial statement regarding the axing, which was delivered shortly after the news went to press last week, was cordial as she took to Instagram to state:
“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 o everyone who watched, loved and supported us. ✌🏽 #breakupssuck”
The sentiment seemingly changed, however, after the 31-year-old weighed in on the event again over the weekend. See what she said below that still has tongues wagging:
Friday night (August 7), actress Tessa Thompson visited Kravitz’ Instagram to extend well wishes and say:
“I will miss you alllllllllllll so much.”
“It’s cool. At least Hulu has a ton of other shows starring women of color we can watch. Oh wait.”
The criticism isn’t the first time Hulu’s been under fire for a lack of diversity. While it’s noted the streaming giant does have a section for films and television shows called ‘Black Stories,’ few of the titles are Hulu originals.
As of time reported, they have not responded to Kravitz’ insinuation.
