Naz Humphreys, you're an effing moron

With a big chip on your shoulder.
Briton Naz Humphreys, who has Pakistani heritage, attended a casting session in Hamilton, New Zealand, last week and stood in line for three hours only to be told her skin tone was not suitable.

The Waikato Times said video footage from the audition showed the casting manager telling people they were looking for light-skinned people to play Hobbits.

He reportedly tells the would-be Hobbits: 'I'm not trying to be... whatever. It's just the brief. You've got to look like a Hobbit.'
Well, deity DAMN, they actually want actors who LOOK LIKE THE FREAKIN' CHARACTERS? How dare they?

Listed to this crap:
Ms Humphreys, a social policy researcher, said: 'I would love to be an extra.

'But it just seemed like a shame because obviously Hobbits are not brown or black or any other colour.

'They all look kind of homogenised beige and all derived from the Caucasian gene pool.
Let's see... a race that lives in ONE area of ONE continent, has for bleepin' FOREVER, and they all look similar? No different colors, just slight differences in shade? Who could believe such a thing?(references to regions of Africa, regions of China, etc., will not be tolerated due to excessive good sense).

Ms Humphreys, who is in New Zealand on a working holiday with her husband, told the newspaper: 'It's 2010 and I still can't believe I'm being discriminated against because I have brown skin.
You're being discriminated against BY NOT BEING CHOSEN BECAUSE YOU DON'T LOOK LIKE THE EFFING CHARACTERS? Go take your racial bullshit, fold it to eight corners and shove it up your ass, Humphreys.

Outrageous bullshit discovered thanks to Sondra.

Maybe she can try out as a Stormtrooper on the new and improved Death Star; I hear there's a few females under that armor!

Could you put my name down for the auditions to play "Blade" if there are any re-makes?

Oh, and the neighbour's 17 year old daughter wants to audition for "The Oracle" if there are any Matrix remakes, she's about 6' tall, strawberry blonde, and can't smoke because she gets asthma, that won't be a problem will it, I mean the characters are fictional...


she could also try for john Merrick, the lines are simple enough ;-)
