It’s been an honor to play Cleveland on Family Guy for 20 years. I love this character, but persons of color should play characters of color. Therefore, I will be stepping down from the role.

Look I'm black and a voice actor and I don't think this is necessary. I appreciate the sentiment behind it but I don't think you should do this. This is your most iconic role! That's the beauty of voice acting, the actor's appearance (including skin color) DOES NOT MATTER.

Now look if you feel like it's the right thing to do then by all means. I just don't want VAs to feel guilty for playing a character that doesn't resonate with their own race/beliefs/sexual orientation/etc. As long as you portray those characters respectfully, then it's ok.

I expect Joe to be voiced by a paraplegic as well

How many millions of dollars did you make by committing verbal blackface, Mike? Shouldn't you give all that money plus interest to the black community that you systematically robbed all these years?

That’s not good enough. Gift all the proceeds you earned to the black community. You must atone for the sin of Playing the voice of a cartoon character that wasn’t the same color as you. Do it now
