Tim Burton Is Not a Fan of Political Correctness
It's easy to pick out a Tim Burton film. Eerie music, whimsical plots and eccentric costumes are all musts for a Burton masterpiece like Edward Scissorhands and The Nightmare Before Christmas. Yet, some critical movie goers have apparently noticed another feature of Burton's zany creations: a lack of diversity.

The Hollywood director is now facing criticism for not casting enough minority actors in his films, particularly his soon to be released Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. A Bustle reporter confronted Burton about why the cast is so white. Instead of succumbing to pressure, Burton pushed back at the politically correct rhetoric and defended his directorial decisions.

Hollywood has had its share of racial controversy in the last year or so. Several actors and actresses boycotted or spoke out against last year's Oscars ceremony because the academy did not nominate enough minority actors, they claimed.

As for Burton's recent comments, it seems he's lost a few ticket sales.
