Twitter Slams ‘In the Heights’ For Representation

The musical In The Heights made its debut in theaters and on HBO Max this past weekend and Twitter wasn’t too happy with the final product.

Twitter users slammed the movie for not having enough Black LatinX representation in the film.

The film tells the story of a Dominican community in Washington Heights, New York and one Twitter user said, “I’ve lived in the heights nearly ten years on and off. There are NOT that many light-skinned folk up here.”

Before its release the film was highly-anticipated, but it didn’t show in the numbers. The film was projected to bring in $15 million but only managed a disappointing $11.4 million.
