Seth Rogen says he instantly stepped in when he came upon a baby actor was put in blackface on the set of the comedy, “Good Boys,” which he’s producing.
TMZ broke the story … a stand-in for 11-year-old actor Keith L. Williams was sporting brown make-up to darken his pores and skin, and an afro wig throughout filming final week in Vancouver. Seth says he’s “terribly sorry” it occurred.
He says, “As soon as I was made aware of it, I ensured we put an end to it — and I give my word that on any project my team and I are involved in, we will take every precaution to make sure something similar does not take place again.”
As we reported, manufacturing sources claimed the make-up was used on the stand-in to match Keith’s complexion … strictly for lighting functions.
If that’s true, Seth clearly isn’t completely satisfied about it. He added, “I’m engaging in conversations to make sure I find the best way to do that. It’s on me to be proactive. Reacting isn’t enough.”
