Idea for the next James Bond movie: 007 sits at his computer for two-and-a-half hours and writes a thinkpiece about himself.

Earlier this week, James Bond author Anthony Horowitz told the Daily Mail that Idris Elba was "too street" to play the role. While he insisted it wasn't a race thing, everyone was like, it's weird that you're saying that, considering it's such a race thing. 

Horowitz quickly apologized, and now Elba has responded to the comments in an Instagram post (above). He took a screenshot of an article about the apology and wrote: "Always Keep Smiling!! It takes no energy and never hurts! Learned that from the Street!!" Wow, the high road is looking good, just saying.
