Disney is Under Fire for Admitting to Darkening White Actors' Skin for 'Aladdin'

Disney is Under Fire for Admitting to Darkening White Actors' Skin for 'Aladdin' One extra, Kaushal Odedra, told The Times that he saw "around twenty" fair skinned actors waiting to have their skin darkened. "Great care was taken to put together one of the largest, most diverse casts ever seen on screen." "Diversity of our cast and background performers was a requirement and only in a handful of instances when it was a matter of specialty skills, safety and control (special effects rigs, stunt performers and handling of animals) were crew made up to blend in." Actor Kal Penn chimed in on Twitter. Disney previously ran into diversity issues with Aladdin after they struggled to find young actors with singing abilities in London, Abu Dhabi, India and Egypt.
