Miranda’s reports come just days after the musical “In the Heights” about a vibrant and diverse Latin community in New York City was released in theaters. The film was criticized for having dark-colored Afro-Latinos in the background and dance scenes, but not in the lead roles.
“In trying to paint the mosaic of this community, we have fallen short,” he said. “I’m really sorry.”
Miranda said in her note that she “learns from feedback”.
“Thank you for raising it, I ask,” he wrote.
“I try to accommodate both the incredible pride of the film we produced and hold them accountable for our shortcomings,” Miranda added. “Thank you for your honest feedback. I promise to excel in my future plans. I am committed to the learning and development we all need to do to ensure that we value our diverse and vibrant community.”
