Zoë Kravitz, star of the recently canceled Hulu show, “High Fidelity,” has called out the streaming service for its lack of diversity.
“I wanna give a shout out to my #highfidelity family. Thank you for all the love and heart you put into this show. I’m in awe of all of you. And thank you to everyone who watched, loved and supported us. #breakupssuck,” she wrote.
“I will miss you alllllllllllll so much,” actress Tessa Thompson commented.
Kravitz then replied, “It’s cool. At least Hulu has a ton of other shows starring women of color we can watch. Oh wait.”
In the series, Kravitz played lead character Rob, who owns a record store in Crown Heights and is obsessed with ‘top five’ lists. Although the series actually explores Rob’s epic romance failures.
Rob not only owns a record store (as any self-respecting record store owner should be), but she’s completely obsessed with music (a and her obsession knows no bounds. Whether it be rap, disco, funk, soul, or rock, her intense love for music is succinctly translated through its scoring.
The show was panned by critics for being too similar to the original movie, which starred white actor John Cusack.
The show was awesome — and we hope that show creators will not give up on the series but instead consider to shot it to another platform.
A petition has been started demanding that Hulu renew the series
In the meantime, fans of Kravitz can look forward to seeing her flex her acting chops as he is starring as Catwoman in The Batman, scheduled for release next year.
