“It’s cool. At least hulu has a ton of other shows starring women of color we can watch. Oh wait,” she said in a follow-up comment.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, High Fidelity was based on the 1995 Nick Hornby novel and the 2000 film starring John Cusack who played Rob, following the life and loves of the owner of a record store. 

Lisa Bonet, Kravitz’s mom, played one of Rob’s love interests in the film.

In the new adaptation, Zoe Kravitz played Robyn in the rom-com and also sat as the show’s executive producer.
