Bish Whet!?: People On Twitter Are Mad That "The Wiz" Is An All Black Cast! - The Shade Room

Bish Whet!?: People On Twitter Are Mad That “The Wiz” Is An All Black Cast!

Roommates, who is ready for The Wiz Live! premiere tonight?? The original 1970’s Wiz film starred Michael Jackson, Diana Ross and Richard Pryor among other fantastic entertainers of their time, so hopefully tonight’s doesn’t disappoint!

With all of the wonderful attention that the live adaptation has gained, there also follows a huge misunderstanding! Can you believe that people are  upset that the show has an all-black cast, some even making remarks such as “Why isn’t there an all white cast?” and “There would be an uproar if there was an all white cast”.

What these people are failing to realize that The Wizard of Oz is the white version! It actually the inspiration for The Wiz so, we’re like bish, whet?! Check out some of the ridiculous tweets from Clueless & Friends.
