A few days ago, the star of the film "Ira in imitation" Benedict Cumberbatch turned out to be a participant in an unpleasant incident. Talking to reporters about the job prospects of his black colleagues, Benedict admitted the use of the term "Colored actors", which immediately caused a storm of negative emotions among the fans of the Englishman. Realizing his mistake, Cumberbatch apologized to everyone who hurt him and even called himself an idiot. However, the star of the film "Selma" stood up to defend the actor. David Oyelowo.
According to the actor, now people are too fixated on political correctness and do not notice what meaning the words of his colleague Cumberbatch really had. “Benedict is the best example of political correctness. In fact, he openly supports people like me and other black actors and actresses. There are many more opportunities for us in the US than in the UK, it's true,”says David. “The United States uses the term "Colored people". Is this very different from what he said? I don’t think so. Try to focus on what he was trying to convey."
