We all know that the 2014 version of “Annie” features a black lead character played by Quvenzhané Wallis. You may also know that Target is featuring a line of clothes inspired by the movie.

Here’s why people are upset:

 

This is the poster featured in Target stores. The model doesn’t look ANYTHING like Quvenzhané Wallis. Someone has even gone so far as to create a Change.org petition to have Target remove the posters.

A portion of the petition reads: “Your recent Annie ads and in-store displays depicts a misleading depiction of the movie as it shows a Caucasion young lady opposed to the star of the film- Quvenzhané Wallis. Though the model is quite professional, she does not speak to the relevance of the movie or main character. When the original Annie came out, everything was about Aileen Quinn or a character/person that emulated her…why not now Target? If you can show it online, show it in ALL of your stores with multiple signage with different girls not one!”
