John Boyega is an up-and-coming Hollywood star. After appearing as Finn in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens“, he now has multiple films about to be released. With all this new attention focussed on him, Boyega attacked the popular HBO series, “Game of Thrones“, now in its final season.
Boyega claims that there is a lack of diversity in the HBO blockbuster.
“There are no black people on Game of Thrones. You don’t see one black person in Lord of the Rings. I ain’t paying money to always see one type of person on-screen,” he said. “Because you see different people from different backgrounds, different cultures, every day. Even if you’re a racist, you have to live with that. We can ruffle up some feathers.”
But what he said wasn’t exactly true!

What about those guys?
Could it be that Boyega has never seen an episode of “Game of Thrones”?
