Controversy Edit

The casting of Blair Underwood in a role of a paraplegic despite the fact the actor does not have a physical disability requiring a wheelchair has become a sore spot with several wheelchair-bound actors. Sons of Anarchy actor Kurt Yaeger, himself an amputee, is quoted as saying "This would be like being in the '50s and having a white guy do blackface, at this point. You need to start having disabled people playing disabled characters. Period."[3] Auti Angel, a paralyzed actress who appears in the Sundance Channel’s reality series Push Girls said "What are they afraid of? There are so many extremely talented individuals who are performing artists with a different ability."[4] Disabled independent filmmaker Larry Sapp is actually boycotting the show, and has started a Facebook page called "Don't Shoot Ironside."[5]
