'Game Of Thrones' Called Out For Diversity Problem
On Sunday night's episode of 'Game of Thrones,' Missandei of Naath, played by actress Nathalie Emmanuel, was captured during an ambush.
Business Insider reports that fans on social media took the opportunity to criticize the mega-popular series for its poor track record in giving actors of color prominent roles.
One Twitter user wrote, "I knew they’d kill her.
Only Black woman on the show." Missandei was beheaded later in the episode at Cersei Lannister's command.
After her death, there were no living black females left in the show.
Many social media users also pointed out that the "Game of Thrones" writers' room is primarily white and male.
The show has been called out in the past for controversial choices regarding people of color.
