25 Times Latino Roles Were Unforgivably Whitewashed In Hollywood
19. “Nacho Libre”Jack Black in Nacho Libre / Paramount Pictures
So this was another spoof but its whitewashing still isn’t likely to be forgiven. In the film, Nacho is based off of Fray Tormenta, a Mexican Catholic priest who had a decades long career as a masked luchador. Shamefully it was played by Jack Black.
