Why did this author do a 180 in her stance against whitewashing?

"Veronica Roth once vowed to fight whitewashing in any Hollywood adaptations of Divergent, but now she’s gone back on that promise."

white wash Divergent

Now I remember why I'm not going to see this movie or read any of these books.

Reading progress update: I've read 2%.
Celebromancy - Michael R. Underwood

Skillful description of Lindsey Lohan, without saying it's her.


Also, if Ree has a "Puerto Rican" complexion than there's some serious white washing going on in the covers of these book.

“He Looks Mixed Race”. “Divergent” & White Privilege.

"I don’t think [Veronica] Roth has much say on the casting of the film of her book ["Divergent]. She certainly hasn’t been on lengthy bragging sprees about how “interfere-y” she’s been like Cassandra Clare was with “The Mortal Instruments” (her backtracking on that has been one of the pop culture highlights of my year). I understand not wanting to annoy the film’s producers or cause a fuss that could turn into something more public. However, her noted U-turn on the issue has to be addressed. We have to discuss the wider implications of what she’s said, what she hasn’t said and how the white privilege prevalent throughout the fandom and the industry has polluted the world at large."

Why did Veronica Roth do a u-turn on her stance in white-washing when it came to her own movie?

Authors seldom have control over things like casting (although Cassandra Clare did spend an awful lot of time bragging about her creative control of the TMI movie until it flopped and she did a whole lot of hand-wringing). However, for Roth to go from being admirably vocal on a serious issue to mindlessly cheerleading that very thing she opposed is just sad.
