While many posts were serious, some poked fun at various controversial actors. @BlackMajiik’s chose Scarlett Johansson who told As If magazine in a July 2019 interview she “should be allowed to play any person, or any tree, or any animal because that is my job and the requirements of my job” in response to backlash surrounding whitewashing in Hollywood.

There’s also this jab at Jake Gyllenhaal for his role in the whitewashed Prince of Persia.
