American actor Peter Dinklage was recently seen condemning the remake of the recent movie Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs remake of Disney. He called out the movie as a movie that is “f**king Backwards”.
When the actor made his comments regarding the live-action remake, he was addressing the concept of “wokeness”. The discussion took place on the newest episode of the WTF with Marc Maron podcast.
Netizens are going crazy after the big statement was made by the actor on a huge platform in front of a huge number of listeners. But it is very essential to know what the whole statement was and what made Peter Dinklage pass such a strong remark.
He can be heard saying “Literally no offense to anyone, but I was a little taken aback when they were very proud to cast a Latina actress as Snow White. You’re still telling the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Take a step back and look at what you’re doing there. It makes no sense to me.”
Peter who himself was born with achondroplasia, a common form of dwarfism, said, “The producers are progressive in one aspect, but they are developing a ‘backward’ narrative about seven dwarfs living in a cave together at the same time.”
“You’re progressive in one aspect, but you’re still producing that f***ing backward narrative about seven dwarfs living in a cave together,” he said. It can be deduced that Peter made such a statement as he has a kind of dwarfism and is living in the 21st century.
He seemed to be personally offended by the upcoming movie and its storyline. That is why he also stated “I’ve got to admit, there’s a lot of hypocrisy going on.
” That is why during an interview on Marc Maron’s WTF show, the actor accused Disney of “hypocrisy” for promoting a diverse cast while resorting to detrimental stereotypes.
“No offense, Utmost respect for Artists”
Peter Dinklage continued, “I have the deepest love and respect for the actress and all others who believed they were doing the right thing.” But he also believes he wasn’t “loud enough” in his support for the cause.
That is why he said “Have I done nothing from my soapbox to advance the cause? I suppose I’m not loud enough. I’m not sure which studio that is, but they were so proud of it. All love and respect to the actress and all the people who believed they were doing the right thing, but what are you doing?” he continued.
For those who don’t know, the original Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was based on the Brothers Grimm’s 1812 German fairy tale. The dwarfs resided in a cottage rather than a cave in the original narrative and Disney feature. Other versions of the story have Snow White befriending 17 thieves in a cage rather than the seven dwarfs who live in a cottage.
