High school accused of “white washing” crappy culturally appropriated rip off of Wizard of Oz – cancels production

The Wiz – A crappy musical culturally appropriated rip off of the beloved Wizard of Oz. The original Oz didn’t have a pedophile scarecrow!

Beal pulls plan to stage The Wiz after ‘white washing’ criticism

A London, Ont., high school has pulled the plug on plans to stage the musical The Wiz this year amid criticism the production would be a “white-washing” of the Wizard of Oz adaptation told from an African American perspective.

H.B. Beal Secondary School principal Michael Deeb said the decision came on Thursday, a little more than a week after the school announced The Wiz as its annual production.

The Wiz is flagrant cultural appropriation! I’m offended!
