#Rant I think Idris Elba is a cool actor. But don’t get this obsession with the public wanting a Black, James Bond! No one wants a White man playing Shaft. Bond is a white English spy! Stop the bullshit! #RantOver
Public service reminder: James Bond is not real. Fictional character, who has been Scottish, Australian, Irish, English, good actor, bad actor. But always an actor. He. Is. Not. Real. https://t.co/q4LPwXdWi3
I get that James Bond as a character is a white male, and I get not wanting to modify core identity features about characters we know and love...
But Idris Elba is B-A enough for me to not care haha CAST THAT DUDE and I’ll actually see that Bond movie in theaters not Redbox

Old enough to remember when James Bond was impersonated by Scottish, Irish, and Australian actors. They weren’t English and nobody minded it. @idriselba is English, just like the fictional James Bond.
It's pointless saying Idris Elba should play James Bond.
Must there be a black version of popular white characters?
If a white South African played T'Challa, you lot would've lost your minds.
We should work towards having our own original characters.
@andreajenkyns I think remainers have and do accuse most "brexiteers" of being "Russian bots/spies". To me it shows an inability to understand that we all have different views and they need to give that a reason - they've watched too much James Bond!!?
@KTHopkins James Bond was really several different people, it's the name given to the agent using the 007 tag at the time. Therefore each successor of the number will be a different person. No problem.
