Seth Rogen Under Fire for Film Putting Child Actor in Blackface

Actor, director, and producer Seth Rogen is taking intense criticism for putting a child actor serving as a body double in blackface and a fat suit to look more like the star he was standing in for.
The child was photographed in the controversial get-up in Vancouver on the set of the upcoming film Good Boys as he prepared to stand-in for child actor, 11-year-old Keith L Williams the Daily Mail reports.

A complaint was filed with the actor’s union after the child was seen on the set of the film being produced by Seth Rogen.
Some sources told TMZ that this is a common practice in order to correct lighting levels for the scenes that will be shot later with the star. But activist rap-actor Common found the situation abhorrent.
