He said: “I was a little taken aback by the fact they were very proud to cast a Latina actress as Snow White — but you’re still telling the story of the Seven Dwarfs.
“You’re progressive in one way but you’re still making that f*****g backward story of seven dwarfs living in the cave.
“Have I done nothing to advance the cause from my soapbox? I guess I’m not loud enough.”
US-born Rachel Zegler, 20, who has a Colombian mum and Polish dad, has been cast as Snow White in Disney’s upcoming live action adaptation of its classic 1937 animated film.
