Netflix Star Mocks Royals for Being White

One of the stars of the Netflix show Queen Charlotte called the British royal family 'terribly white,' saying that the family's shot on the Buckingham Palace balcony after the coronation lacked diversity.

She said later that she didn't mean to "upset" anyone with her statement and that she was just being honest.

On Netflix's Bridgerton, actress Adjoa Andoh plays Lady Agatha Danbury. On Saturday, she was on ITV's live coverage of King Charles III's coronation. Andoh was happy with the coronation service at Westminster Abbey, which included people of many different races and religions, but she wasn't as happy with what happened next.

“We’ve gone from the rich diversity of the Abbey to the terribly white balcony. I’m very struck by that,” she said.

Andoh later issued a quasi-apology after her comment provoked vehement responses from viewers.

“I think I upset a few people yesterday,” she reportedly said on BBC Radio 4’s Sunday morning show with Paddy O’Connell.

“I was talking about the day and how marvellous it was and then looking at the balcony at the end and suddenly going: “Oh it’s so white!” because the day had been so mixed and I didn’t mean to upset anybody.”

Andoh wasn’t the only leftist to obsess over the royal family’s whiteness on Saturday.

This Is Why I Resist author and frequent royal critic Dr. Shola Mos-Shogbamimu accused the royals of upholding “white supremacy.”

“The ideology of White Supremacy is literally, metaphorically & symbolically the bread & butter of British Monarchy & superbly exemplified on Buckingham Palace balcony while the multicultural/multiethnic/multi race ‘isms’ stay below where they belong,” she tweeted.
