'The Bold Type' Producers Respond To Star Aisha Dee's Call For Changes Behind The Scenes

Aisha Dee took a page from her character Kat’s playbook and spoke out publicly about the need for changes on The Bold Type!

In a lengthy post, the 26-year-old actress called for more diversity behind-the-scenes and even criticized her character’s recent storyline.

“By speaking out, I’m taking a risk. It’s scary, but it’s wroth it,” she concluded her post. “This is not judgment. This is a call to action. We deserve to see stories that are for us, by us.”

Now, the producing companies of The Bold Type, Freeform and Universal TV, are responding to Aisha‘s call for action.

“We applaud Aisha for raising her hand and starting conversations around these important issues,” they said in a statement, via THR. “We look forward to continuing that dialogue and enacting positive change. Our goal on The Bold Type is and has always been to tell entertaining, authentic stories that are representative of the world that Kat, Jane and Sutton live in — we can only do that if we listen.”

Be sure to tune in to the season finale of The Bold Type TONIGHT (July 16) at 10pm ET/PT on Freeform!
