Outrage, I tells ya.  OUTRAGE!

Images of Dakota Fanning playing a white Muslim refugee from Ethiopia have been met with consternation on social media.

The actor plays the protagonist in Sweetness in the Belly, the upcoming movie adaptation of Camilla Gibbs’s 2005 novel of the same name.

Gibbs’s book tells the story of Lilly, a British orphan who travels to Ethiopia after being raised in Morocco – and is eventually forced to flee Ethiopia for England amid political unrest in the Seventies.

Can't see the problem bearing in mind this is the same film industry that is seriously considering casting a black actor as James Bond Confused

Similar storyline to when Eddie Murphy played an African in Coming to America.

And didn't the BBC remake of Oliver a few years ago have a black actress playing Nancy?

Will Smith played Muhammad Ali and he isn't Muslim or a boxer.

That's my point precisely, Rey.  What on Earth is wrong with an actress (albeit one I've never heard of) playing a role such as this and why are people getting "outraged" (lol) about it?  Whatever next, a female Dr Who?  Oh, hold on ... how far did that crap idea go?

Not far enough, judging by BBC standards trilby?

The last time Lenny was on tv he was introduced as a national treasure.
I'm sure there's a joke in there somewhere but I'll leave it to Crisp.
