British actor Idris Elba can’t play James Bond because he’s black. Radio host Rush Limbaugh said on his show on Tuesday that Elba should not be considered to play the famous secret agent, the Daily Mail reports. First of all he is a brilliant actor and he can be brilliant British spy agent codenamed: 007.
Few days ago radio host said these very racial remarks on his radio show.
Today brilliant artist Alijah Villian and friend of FizX has made this brilliant art to prove him wrong and I have to say Idris Elba will look exquisite as Bond just as brilliant as he looks in the picture above, His accent and his mannerisms are just spot on for new James Bond.
Limbaugh continues on the subject.
“James Bond is a total concept put together by Ian Fleming. He was white and Scottish. Period. That is who James Bond is, was,” Limbaugh said.
“But now [they are] suggesting that the next James Bond should be Idris Elba, a black Briton, rather than a white from Scotland.”
“That’s not who James Bond is and I know it’s racist to probably point this out.” Yes it racist and quite stupid actually.
Limbaugh took it further, saying casting Elba as Bond is like casting George Clooney as President Obama or or Kelsey Grammer as Nelson Mandela.
Limbaugh went on to compare the idea of casting Elba as 007 to Kate Hudson playing Michelle Obama and Scarlett Johansson as Condoleezza Rice.
He ended by saying “we’re just playing here.”
