Radio Host Rush Limbaugh Brings Controversy By Saying Idris Elba Shouldn't Play James Bond Because He's a 'Black Briton'

Journalist Rush Limbaugh just made some pretty controversial comments about how he believes Idris Elba should not be in contention for the next James Bond he’s “a black Briton.”

“James Bond is a total concept put together by Ian Fleming. He was white and Scottish. Period. That is who James Bond is, was,” Rush said on his radio show. “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 and I know it’s racist to probably point this out.”

Idris has mentioned in the past that he has been on the short list for the role and would take it if it was offered.

“I just don’t want to be called the first black James Bond. Do you understand what I’m saying? Sean Connery wasn’t the Scottish James Bond and Daniel Craig wasn’t the blue-eyed James Bond. So if I played him, I don’t want to be called the black James Bond,” Idris said in the past.

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Rush Limbaugh’s comments???
