Fewer Than 2% Of Movie Characters Are Muslim, Report Finds
Fewer than 2% of movie characters with speaking roles are Muslim, according to a study released on Thursday.
The study, which examined 200 popular films from the U.S., U.K., Australia, and New Zealand released from 2017 to 2019, found only a handful of Muslim characters ― and those were most often in limited or stereotypical roles. The report, “Missing & Maligned: The Reality of Muslims in Popular Global Movies,” comes from the University of Southern California’s Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, Academy Award-nominated actor Riz Ahmed, the Ford Foundation, and the Pillars Fund.
