Paralympian actress blasts Dwayne Johnson for playing amputee in ‘Skyscraper’

“Individuals with disabilities make up almost 20% of the world’s population. We are the largest minority and the ‘most marginalized group in Hollywood,; according to a 2017 study conducted by Fox, CBS and the Ruderman Family Foundation (an organization I know you are aware of and engaging with now). The study found that in last year’s TV season, less than 2% of characters were written to have a disability and of THOSE characters, 95% of the roles were filled with able-bodied actors,” she wrote in an open letter.
