John Leguizamo has criticized the decision to cast American actor James Franco as Cuban revolutionary Fidel Castro in an upcoming film.

Earlier this week, it was announced that Franco, 44, will play Castro in the indie project Alina of Cuba, and Lequizamo, 62, took to his Instagram on Friday to speak out about the casting choice.

‘How’s this going? How does Hollywood exclude us, but also steal our stories?’ Leguizamo kicked off in his rant, which garnered nearly 10,000 likes.

No more appropriation of Hollywood and streamers! Boycott! This F’d up! Plus a seriously hard story to tell without glorification, which would be wrong!’

“He’s not Latino!” John Leguizamo has rejected decision to cast James Franco as Fidel Castro, demanding fans boycott movie over ‘appropriation’

Add: ‘I have no problem with Franco, but he’s not Latino!’

Ana Navarro, co-host of The View, then responded under the post, telling Leguizamo that she would join him in boycotting the film.

Navarro wrote, “I would like to think that no Latino actor worth his salt would sign up to play and glorify a murderous dictator who terrorized the people of Cuba for six decades. For both reasons you cited, I join you in the boycott.’

The film – scripted by Jose Rivera and Nilo Cruz – will depict the life story of Fernandez, a Cuban exile and social activist.

When she was 10, Fernandez discovered she was Castro’s daughter when her mother revealed the truth to her after Castro spent years secretly visiting the family home. Revuelta had given her and her doctor husband’s wealth to fund the early stages of the communist revolution.

Fernandez eventually became an anti-communist activist who was arrested multiple times for her attempts to leave Cuba and banned from traveling outside the country. Fernandez defected to Spain in 1993 and eventually settled in Miami.

The film will begin on August 15 in the Colombian cities of Cartagena and Bogota, according to the outlet.
