Tim Burton's new film Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children has a predominantly white cast, and when the website Bustle asked Burton why, he gave… not the best answer.

Burton said:

Nowadays, people are talking about [diversity] more. [But] things either call for things, or they don’t. I remember back when I was a child watching The Brady Bunch and they started to get all politically correct, like, OK, let’s have an Asian child and a black — I used to get more offended by that than just — I grew up watching blaxploitation movies, right? And I said, that’s great. I didn’t go like, OK, there should be more white people in these movies.
