Elba’s tweet comes a few days after host of radio talk show ‘Rush Limbaugh‘ made controversial comments that James Bond is expected to be “white and Scottish.”
Limbaugh said “James Bond is a total concept put together by Ian Fleming. He was white and Scottish. Period. That is who James Bond is, was,”…. “But now (they are) suggesting that the next James Bond should be Idris Elba, a black Briton, rather than a white from Scotland. But that’s not who James Bond is.”……“I know it’s racist to probably point this out,” he acknowledged.
