Ados Defenders started this petition to Nat Geo WILD and

Join us in protesting the casting of Anti-African American Actress Cynthia Erivo in the role of African  American legend Aretha Franklin. 

Erivo, was announced on Thursday as the lead actress for the upcoming role in the National Geographic series, Genius:Aretha.

This British nigerian actress has expressed her disdain for descendants of American chattel slavery through mockery of our culture, and has shown support for the anti-Ados sentiments of Nigerian Luuvie Ajayi. 

National Geographic should correct this action by replacing this actress with an American one of ados descent.
