John Legend is looking a little suspect to the people today!
Why? Well, people believe he is typecasting for his next music video.
Apparently, he denied that he was looking for “out of shape” actors for a music video depicting Donald Trump supporters.
The “Ordinary People” singer allegedly asked for eight white people, who according to a pagesix article are ‘preferably out of shape” actors and actress not working for the union. They were to be between the ages of 30 and 65.
In a casting call obtained by TMZ the listing also called for “10 young, blond male actors with long hair on top and short hair on the sides, between 18 and 35 to play Black Lives Matter protesters, in addition to a white and Hispanic female, ages 18 to 45, to share a smooch in a scene.”
The listing explained that the video aims to show that there is no segregation but only human beings.
In a tweet posted to his twitter, Legend explained that, “There’s a casting call out there claiming to represent me looking for ‘out of shape’ Trump supporters. This didn’t come from me or my team.” He went on to say, ”I still think Trump is awful and whoever voted for him did a disservice to the country. But I didn’t issue this casting call.”
During the campaign season, he and his wife Chrissy Teigen were huge supporters of Hillary Clinton.
