QUOTE OF THE DAY: Hollywood Dwarves Rise Up Against Their ‘King’

Peter Dinklage has faced criticism from other dwarf actors for apparently pushing Disney to cancel the dwarf roles in a forthcoming “Snow White” remake.

THE QUOTE

Dylan Postl, best known for his stint as WWE leprechaun character Hornswoggle, slammed Dinklage for his recent “woke” criticism of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” — which led Disney to announce a “different approach with these seven characters.”

  • “Peter Dinklage is the biggest dwarf actor probably of all time but it doesn’t make him king dwarf,” Postl told the Daily Mail in a Friday article about the Hollywood dwarf backlash.
  • “You’re taking these roles of not just one but seven little people away because you feel like we have to make progression?” … It’s pretty selfish,” said Postl, who noted Dinklage played a mythical dwarf in the HBO series “Game of Thrones” and elsewhere.
  • “Also, [the seven dwarfs] each have their own individual characteristics, they look after Snow White, they’re the heroes. This is a good thing!’

Lauren Brooks, a Texas-based talent agent who has dwarf clients, told the Mail: “Making the dwarfs in ‘Snow White’ now normal-sized people is like taking the cast of ‘Roots’ and making them white.”
