CONTROVERSY! Robert Downey, Jr., wears crackaface in Tropic Thunder

<satire>You’ll never guess who that cracker is on the left! It’s Robert Downey, Jr.! That’s right, the brown-haired, brown-eyed man himself is wearing make-up to play a blonde-haired, blue-eyed man in Ben Stiller’s upcoming Tropic Thunder. Who’s offended? As a half-Filipino, half-white person, I am offended. Why couldn’t they hire someone from the Master Race to play the role instead? You should be totally offended. What do you guys think? Post your comments about how offended you are! Sieg heil!

Word is, he also plays a black man in the film.</satire>

Tropic Thunder is directed by Ben Stiller from a script by Etan Cohen and Justin Theroux and co-stars Jack Black, Nick Nolte, Brandon T. Jackson, Danny McBride, and Jay Baruchel. The film is out on August 15, 2008.

    Gah, you know people are going to flip a shit once this really gets out. I mean, yeah, there is a line that shouldn’t be crossed. This doesn’t cross anything.

    Wasn’t Owen Wilson supposed to be in this movie? Maybe that was his role and Downey Jr. stepped in. To tell you the truth I don’t freakin’ care about anything else he’s in this year except for IRONMAN.

    I have to agree with Liz. Who cares when Ironman is so very close?
