New Netflix Series On Tyre Nichols Beating To Feature White Officers
LOS GATOS, CA — Netflix announced they have acquired the rights to tell the tragic story of Tyre Nichols’ death at the hands of 5 black police officers. Leadership at the streaming giant confirmed the police officers will be portrayed by white actors.
“While we know the 5 officers who killed Nichols were factually black, it is also clear that they were morally white,” said Netflix VP of Inclusion Vernā Myers. “Since TV is a visual medium, we want to convey to the viewer that these officers had the invisible specter of white supremacy flowing through their veins.”
