Muslim group wants critics to monitor stereotyping on 'Tyrant'
by Greg Braxton
A Muslim advocacy group is asking that critics reviewing FX's upcoming drama "Tyrant" address possible stereotyping of Arab and Muslim culture.
Leaders for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which calls itself the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, made the request after attending a screening of the pilot in Washington, D.C.
"In the pilot of FX's 'Tyrant,' Arab Muslim culture is devoid of any redeeming qualities and is represented by terrorists, murderous children, rapists, corrupt billionaires and powerless female victims," said CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper. "In 'Tyrant,' even the 'good' Arab Muslims are bad."
