The Internet is Puzzled by Diversity Discussion Featuring Seth Rogen and 6 Other White Guys

The Hollywood Reporter published a roundtable conversation featuring seven animation producers and directors discussing their respective films. The talk centered around how cultural biases affect their approach to making movies and their portrayals of princesses on screen.

Each director, you guessed it, was a white man.

It didn’t take long for the internet to call out The Hollywood Reporter on its ironic roundtable conversation.

One user even made a prophecy about The Hollywood Reporter’s next interview.

Rogen responded with his own tongue-in-cheek response.

“Finally, you can see the white male take on ethnic stereotypes and sexism! Proud to break new ground,” the actor tweeted.
