Fictional changes to fictional characters

“We’re going to update this Shakespeare play to modern times!”

“Good, artistic license allows for re-interpretations of previously done work.”

“We’re taking the story of Alexander Hamilton and reinterpreting it by using people of color as the main characters.”

“Sounds interesting, and certainly within the rights of the artist.”

“We’re redoing the fantasy make-believe story of ‘The Little Mermaid’, changing nothing to the plotline, and we’ve cast this black girl as the main character.”

“WHAT? Look, I’m no racist, but there is no need whatsoever for your politically correct bullshit. I protest strongly!”
