Too Short for a Blog, Too Long for a Tweet XL

Here's an excerpt from an article I just read, "Joseph Kahn, the Infamous Director of Taylor Swift’s Music Videos, Tells the Ugly Truth":

And yet, when writers criticized the video for Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” for romanticizing the colonization of Africa and not including many performers of color, Kahn wrote in a statement that the “key creatives” who made the video were people of color. Further, since the video follows an American film crew shooting in Africa during the early 20th century, Kahn and his team “collectively decided it would have been historically inaccurate to load the crew with more black actors as the video would have been accused of rewriting history.”
