Sky had been criticized for casting the white Shakespeare in Love star as the King of Pop in “Elizabeth, Michael and Marlon.” The half-hour program also features Stockard Channing as Elizabeth Taylor and British actor Brian Cox as Marlon Brando.
“It angers me to see how obviously intentional it was for them to be this insulting, not just towards my father, but my godmother Liz as well.”
The show is an episode in the Urban Myths series, which Sky says looks at “remarkable stories from well-known historical, artistic and cultural figures, which may or may not have happened in real life.”
Fiennes defended his casting to The Associated Press last year, saying the project doesn’t promote stereotyping.
