Bill Maher had some harsh phrases for the critics of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s new movie throughout his discuss present Friday, in accordance with Deadline.
Miranda’s new movie, “In the Heights“, has received criticism for not including enough darkly-colored Afro-Latino characters.
In response, Miranda apologized on social media.
“I hear that without sufficient dark-skinned Afro-Latino representation, the work feels extractive of the community we wanted so much to represent with pride and joy. In trying to paint a mosaic of this community, we fell short. I’m truly sorry,” wrote Miranda.

During his discuss present, Bill Maher gave Miranda some recommendation.
“Stop the apologizing,” stated Maher, “You’re the guy who made the founding fathers Black and Hispanic! I don’t think you have to apologize to Twitter.” (RELATED: Is Bill Maher Becoming America’s Voice Of Reason)
“This is why people hate Democrats; It’s cringey,” Maher continued, in accordance with Deadline. “I mean he’s a Latino making a Latino movie with a Latino cast. Not good enough. Nothing is ever good enough for these people. They’re like children. We don’t raise our children right and it’s reflected in the media. No one ever tells their children, ‘Shut the f*ck up. Sit down. Listen to your elders. Stop bitching.’”
Maher ended his section by calling the critics “bullies” and advising listeners to face as much as them, saying, “People are going to have to stand up to these bullies, because that’s what it is, bullying. It’s ‘I can make you crawl like a dog and I enjoy it.’”
