Kian Lawley Has Been Dropped by CAA

Kian Lawley has been dropped by CAA, THR reports.

The digital influencer and actor was fired just yesterday from his upcoming movie, The Hate U Give, after an old video with him saying racist comments resurfaced.

Kian was signed to CAA in 2015.

“I am fully aware of the mistakes I have made and strive every day to become a better me than I was yesterday,” Kian shared in an apology earlier today.

“We all have a voice, whether it’s big or small, we need to use it to spread love & light. From now on, I plan to use my voice for positive change.”

Kian Lawley is trying to make up for his past mistakes and has issued an apology on social media for his actions.

“First of all, I am deeply sorry to those that were effected by my choice of language,” the actor and digital influencer wrote. “I understand that I am in the public eye & have many supporters, but none of my actions that took place should be supported. Words have power and can do a lot damage. I own mine and I am sorry.”

Kian continues, “I respect Fox’s decision to recast this role for The Hate U Give as it is an important story, and it would not be appropriate for me to be involved considering the actions of my past. I understand the impact and I have grown a lot and learned since then.

“With that being said, I am fully aware of the mistakes I have made and strive every day to become a better me than I was yesterday. We all have a voice, whether it’s big or small, we need to use it to spread love & light. From now on, I plan to use my voice for positive change.”

Last night, news broke that Kian had been fired from The Hate U Give after an old video with him saying derogatory and racist remarks re-surfaced.

Kian Lawley has been dropped from the upcoming movie The Hate U Give following his racist remarks featured in a resurfaced video.

Twentieth Century Fox will now be giving the Zac and Mia star’s role to another actor.

“Due to the controversy surrounding his past comments and behavior, Kian Lawley will no longer appear in The Hate U Give. The studio plans to recast the role of Chris and reshoot scenes as needed,” a spokesperson for the studio told Variety.

In the clip, Kian can be heard speaking the N-word and other racial slurs. “We’re all black drinking purple Kool-aid and eating Kentucky fried motherf–king chicken,” he says. (The video, which contains offensive language, can be seen in full here).

Kian was originally going to play the boyfriend of the movie’s lead actress, Amandla Stenberg. Based on Angela Thomas‘ novel of the same name, focusing on race and police brutality, the film also stars Issa Rae, Regina Hall, Russell Hornsby, Algee Smith, Lamar Johnson, and Common.

Speaking with JJJ, Anne revealed that the scene “where Kian sings me a song” is one of the ones she loved the most.

“You liked it, I didn’t,” Kian chimed in. “It was so embarrassing. I got hot, I got anxious. I was really nervous.”

Anne adds, “See, that’s so cute. It’s stuff like that, that makes it so real on set. It was such a cute moment. Even in the table read, and he was reading the song out loud, it was still such a cute and great moment. Everyone was smiling about it.”
