This Thursday, we’re throwing it back to one of our favorite song parodies – “Typecast” by Tess Paras. Set to the tune of Lorde’s “Royals,” the song is all about women of color being stereotyped in Hollywood, and constantly being cast as the same roles. Sassy friend/thieving housemaid anyone? We believe the term here is, “Over it.”
It’s gross we’re still dealing with this in Hollywood in 2016, but we’re thankful for badasses like Tess who make comedy that fights against it.
