"I'm a white, middle-class guy from London," Fiennes told Entertainment Tonight. "I'm as shocked as you may be. But he definitely had a pigmentation issue, and that's something I do believe. So, he was probably closer to my color than his original color."
On Friday, January 29, Brown vented about the casting via Twitter.
"Y'all know y'all dead wrong to have dude play MJ," he wrote. "If that's the case LET ME BE SUPERMAN. Da f*c* they do that at? Is that blackface? I DONT SUPPORT THAT CORNY A$$ SH!T!"
