Rush Limbaugh: Idris Elba Can’t Be James Bond Because He’s Black

Published

Radio personality, Republican troll and race baiter Rush Limbaugh thinks Sony executive Amy Pascal suggesting Idris Elba play James Bond is the a terrible idea because Elba is, well, Black.

“James Bond is a total concept put together by Ian Fleming. He was white and Scottish. Period,” the buffoon lampooned on his radio show Tuesday. “That is who James Bond is, was. But now Sony is suggesting that the next James Bond should be Idris Elba, a black Briton, rather than a white from Scotland. But that’s not who James Bond is and I know it’s racist to probably even point this out.”

The ridiculous rhetoric stems from a leaked Pascal email that read, “Idris should be the next bond.” Pascal wrote the email on January 4, 2014 email to Elizabeth Cantillon, former executive vice president of production for Columbia Pictures.

    Obviously he meant that his comment would be perceived as racist today
    even though its just his opinion on the subject. People today are just
    too dumb and reactive to realize this. That said, this is just more
    evidence that Rush is getting older and outlasting his welcome in an
    increasingly feeble minded society that sees racism, sexism and all
    kinds of other isms in everything instead of common sense. I hope he
    retires before his career is ruined because of yet another
    misunderstanding that the main stream media turns into a witch hunt.

    He’s an idiot! He should tell that garbage to hollywood execs who keep putting white people as leads in anime films. Lead roles that should have been played by Asians but went to whites instead. Street Fighter, Dragon Ballz, Mortal Kombat, Avatar: The Last Air Bender…to name a few. Why is his ass silent on that??

    He needs to have several seats!! Idris will make a great James Bond not because of his color, but because of his acting abilities! Hater!!

Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
