Parody Trailer Skewers “Stonewall” Whitewashing Controversy

"Inspired by a true story. Ruined by Hollywood."

It’s no secret that Roland Emmerich’s upcoming Stonewall drama is shrouded with controversy.

Although the film doesn’t hit theaters until September, many have criticized the trailer for being whitewashed and featuring a lack of drag queens or transgender people.

Now a parody trailer has been released, targeting the criticism the movie has received and comparing it to Emmerich’s other “cinematic disaster” films like Independence Day and 2012.

Watch the full parody trailer below.
