Last week, Hulu announced the discontinuation of High Fidelity. Zoë Kravitz, who played Robyn Brooks and executive produced the TV show, took to Instagram to call out the streaming platform for its lack of diversity after not renewing the series for a second season.

“I wanna give a shout out to my #highfidelity family,” Kravitz’s caption reads. “Thank you for all the love and heart you put into this show. I’m in awe of all of you. And thank you to everyone who watched, loved and supported us. #breakupssuck.” Fellow Hollywood stars offered their sympathy and support like Mindy Kaling who tweeted: “Oh I loved #HighFidelity! This is sad news.” Actress Tessa Thompson expressed on Kravitz’s post saying, “I will miss you alllllllllllll so much,” to which the former High Fidelity cast member responded: “It’s cool. At least Hulu has a ton of other shows starring women of color we can watch. Oh wait.”

Though Hulu offers other programs such as Wu-Tang: An American Saga, Ramy and Love, Victor which feature predominantly POC casts, all of the leads are male. The only show that currently stars a Black woman as the lead (Kerry Washington) is Little Fires Everywhere.

The streaming platform has not yet responded to Kravitz’s criticism, so stay tuned while we wait for more updates.
