Peter Dinklage recently came out in protest of the upcoming Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs remake. The Game of Thrones star thinks the entire project is a bad idea. Dinklage believes the story shows a backwards portrayal of little people.
Peter was dumbfounded that Disney would make a new movie out of what he believes is offensive material. Dinklage thinks the way the dwarves are portrayed in the film is demeaning. One fellow star disagrees completely.
Dylan Postl is most famous for his WWE character known as Hornswoggle. Swoggle is also a little person who happens to be in the entertainment industry. Postl recently told TMZ that he believes Peter Dinklage is taking his wokeness too far.
“My issue with everything Peter Dinklage has said with this whole situation about Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and the remake coming. It’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. It’s not Snow White and the Seven Normal-Sized Humans like every other movie. This is a remake of a fairy tale, and this is also giving seven dwarves, people, real life people, actors, a chance to star in a movie in a role that is fit for them. Literally fit for them.
When The Greatest Showman came out, I couldn’t have been the main lead. I couldn’t be P.T. Barnum. I could’ve been one of the side acts, because that role was made for me. The issue at hand is, by saying this, he’s doing something worse for the dwarf and little people community. He’s trying to take roles away. It really blows my mind. The whole woke thing, you’re going too far, in my opinion.”
Dylan Postl thinks people like him stand to lose jobs if Hollywood listens to Peter Dinklage. We’ll see if Disney responds to the criticism. Dylan Postl said he the studio is interested, he and some friends would love to take on the roles.
