That movie was called "White Chicks" and starred Shawn Wayans and Marlon Wayans.
White Chicks (2004) - IMDb


The fact that nobody gets offended when non-white actors portray themselves as white shows the one-sided, hypocritical nature of identity politics in contemporary America.

Oh gosh.


"White face" (btw, that's not a thing) doesn't have a history of mocking and oppressing white people. It was done once in a movie. So? What? Black face was done everywhere. Of course someone who paints their face brown is going to get negative feedback. Given the awful history of black face, why wouldn't it?

I don't care about a single thing Paula Deen does.

You'd have to be completely brain dead to go thru what she did & then repeat it. I just shake my head.
The photo was taken in 2011, before the brouhaha over her using racist terms. It was for a Halloween celebration. And she didn't post this picture up on social media. Someone else did, someone who has now been fired.

How is it different than Robert Downey Jr's black face in Tropic Thunder? Where was the outrage on the director and Robert Downey Jr then?

Spoiler: Liberal Hollywood gets a pass. His portrayal was nothing but a stereotype.

"Butterface" is a term used if everything is hot "But her face". This is unacceptable.
