It didn’t stop there though. One fan wrote, “You wrote more about your steak in the last post than about what has been happening in the last week.” Fans are constantly asking Harrison when there will be a black lead on the show. In 2015, he spoke out for the first time about having diversity on the show, “At the same time, we’re also-we have a job to do. Because we have hundreds and thousands of people trying to work. So what justice are we doing to anybody by taking a great social stand, and then five months later, going, ‘Ok, that was great, nobody watched the show. Advertisers have to buy this show. Advertisers have to buy the next season of the show. I need millions of people to want to watch this show. So I need to put on people that others want to watch.”
Fans of the show have explained to Harrison that his answers about diversity are “tone-deaf and racist.” One fan posted, “I think to be a truly ethical and woke company, you need to sometimes make decisions that might affect your bottom line, but are simply the right thing to do.”
