According to reports, the production for Colin Kaepernick’s story—‘Colin in Black and White’ has been threatened by anti-Black Lives Matter protesters.
The production is staring actor Jaden Michael as Kaepernick and will be directed by Ava DuVernay. Production staff for the six-part series was notified of the situation in a memo that was sent last week. The memo referenced “anti-BLM sentiments may protest against the production.” Production sources that spoke to TMZ said the alleged group behind the anti-BLM sentiments was the Proud Boys.
Since the threats surfaced, executives on the project have reportedly sent an email to the staff outlining measures to protect cast and crew members. A protest was supposed to take place at the location this past Friday, but it did not happen. Stay tuned for more updates.
