Actress Jenny Slate announced on Wednesday that she would no longer be voicing a biracial character in the Netflix animated series “Big Mouth.” “Big Mouth,” which premiered in 2017, is about a group of teenagers and their satirical journey through puberty. One of those characters is Missy, a biracial girl. Slate, who is white, took to Instagram and determined, in light of the cultural shift following the death of George Floyd, she can no longer voice the character.
