I'll admit it. I have no idea about this movie. In fact I just learned what the book is about from a couple of tweens a week ago - but that doesn't change the fact that apparently people can't stand that some of the main characters are (*gasp*) Black.
The tumblr Hunger Games Tweets has collected a smattering of Twitter postings, with the goal of exposing "Hunger Games fans on Twitter who dare to call themselves fans yet don't know a damn thing about the books." What people are saying is disappointing, sad, stomach-churning, and just plain racist [...]Some of the tweets go like:
"Why does rue have to be black not gonna lie kinda ruined the movie"
"Why did the producer make all the good characters black smh"
"Kk call me racist but when I found out rue was black her death wasn't as sad"
You people have some serious MF issues.
