I don’t doubt that Cranor did a good thing when he stepped aside to let someone else voice Carlos. That kind of stuff almost never happens in mainstream media.
But something seemed a little… off.
It wasn’t the decision itself, that was perfectly fine, even admirable.
It was the phrasing.
Translation from Faux-Academic Entitled White Male: “Waaah. Waaaaah. WAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!!!” (Trust me, you can use $5 words all you like but this tantrum is the same as the ones by the Reddit roaches howling about Political Correctness Run Amok and No Faaaaairrrr and Reverse Racism.)
Jesucristo, Jeffrey Cranor is doing the right thing (casting a gay Hispanic actor to voice a gay Hispanic character, in an industry where white straight males already monopolize 85% of all roles) and too many pale males haven’t been this mad since they changed Tom Servo’s voice on MST3K.
Cranor did a decent job with both his one official outing as Carlos’ voice in “The Phone Call” and in the “Condos” show - but I can’t wait to hear what an actual voice actor will bring to the relationship. Maybe he will actually have the oaky tones Cecil swooned over, instead of Cranor’s reedy tenor.
Um…did you actually bother to read the OP’s post? She said that he did a good thing, that his decision was admirable, and that she has no problem with the change. How in the world you got the impression the OP was against it, I’m not sure.
