Chance the Rapper Slams 'Bright' over Its Racial Undertones
Bright is out now on Netflix, but not everyone is happy about it. Joining the chorus of haters is now Chance the Rapper, who has taken issue with how race is portrayed in the film.

Bright was directed by David Ayer and written by Max Landis, telling us the tale of an alternate universe where humans, orcs, elves and fairies all live together, not so harmoniously. In the world of the film, orcs are basically the new minority, with Joel Edgerton's orc character described as an LAPD "diversity hire" and one who should "listen to your master."

There's also a scene where an orc is lynched, with Chance eventually interpreting it all as a "shallow" metaphor for racism.

Some of his Bright tweets can be found below: When a fellow Twitter user suggested that Ayer and Landis weren't trying to a make a metaphor about racism, Chance had this to say: Of course, Chance's criticism of Bright follows a series of less than stellar reviews, including our own.
