British actor Joseph Fiennes will play the role of Michael Jackson in an upcoming movie about a road trip with Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando. When news hit Twitter on Tuesday (and once several people googled Joseph Fiennes) the tweets started pouring in

Reactions ranged from confusion.

Let's never forget, Michael was very proud of being Black.
