Lin-Manuel Miranda is apologizing after “In the Heights” was criticized for its lack of dark-skinned Afro-Latino actors in the film's leading roles. The movie musical takes place in Manhattan’s Washington Heights neighborhood, a diverse community with a rich cultural heritage. But some say the film fell short in its representation and is an example of colorism, or discrimination against people with a darker skin tone, in the Latino community. Miranda apologized on social media.
