Twitter Is Furious At This White Actor’s Comments About Why It’s Totally Fine For Him To Voice A Black Character

The ‘Spy Kids’ star is way outta line.

Published April 19th

In today’s sounds about white news, a 30-year-old white actor thought he could whitesplain himself out of a little controversy he’s now at the center of.

  1. TMZ recently caught up with Spy Kids: Mission Critical actor Travis Turner and asked whether he’s sweating people criticising him for voicing a Black character. His response?

    “If they want they can say whatever,” the Canadian-born actor responded. “I actually come from an urban background. I lived in motels. What I’m trying to say, I relate to the urban community.”

    Oh no fam. What is you doing?

    Well, instead of trying to walk that back, he dove feet first into more problematic statements. Turner says he has “street credibility” which allows him to rap with people like Snoop Dogg. He also says he “sponsors Black kids.”

    Oh yeah, and then he brings up Chris Rock and sites that the comedian doesn’t do gigs on college campuses anymore because they’re too politically correct. *Facepalm*.

  2. In Spy Kids, Turner plays “Little T” and toward the end of his TMZ interview, he tries to do some sort of freestyle to prove he’s a part of the “urban community.” SMH.

    At least Twitter was here to set him straight. See what they had to say below.
