An upcoming remake for the beloved classic, “The Wizard of Oz,” will be taking audiences over the rainbow once more – this time sporting a pride flag.
Writer and director Kenya Barris, the mastermind behind ABC’s “Black-ish,” confirmed that his take on “Oz” will include LGBTQ+ representation to “tell a story that reflects our world,” he said, according to Variety.
“The original was an allegory and a reflection of the way the world was at the time with things like the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl,” Barris told Variety. “Now we’re going to turn a mirror on where we’re at right now and take disparate characters from the LGBTQ community, from different cultural communities and socioeconomic communities, and tell a story that reflects the world. I think this is the best time to do that,” he concluded.
The news is not being received well by many Twitter users. Below are just some of the comments pouring in:

1 in 7 people are from India and 1 in 7 are from China. So who in the group will be Asian? Tin man? Lion?

Exactly. There are more of certain races than LGBT and yet those races won’t be reflected in the film. This isn’t about diversity, it’s an agenda.
