It’s been three years since Emile Hirsch assaulted a woman at the Sundance Film Festival, and Hollywood has apparently forgiven him.
The 33-year-old actor has been cast in the upcoming Quentin Tarantino film about the Manson murders, Once Upon a Time In Hollywood.
Along with Hirsch, the film features an all-star cast, including Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Dakota Fanning, James Marsden, Timothy Olyphant and Al Pacino.
But one person who has been left infuriated by Hirsch’s casting in the film is actress Jameela Jamil.
Writing on Twitter shortly after the announcement was made, the 32-year-old Good Place star called Hirsch’s casting in the movie an “INTENSE case of rich white male privelege [sic]”.
Cool. Emile Hirsch strangled my tiny female best friend until she blacked out at a party in front of dozens of witnesses at Sundance Film Festival (and was convicted) but Tarantino just cast him in a movie. INTENSE case of rich white male privelege eh? Cool. Cool. Cool. ???????? pic.twitter.com/FkZNmK5fda
