Idris Elba Responded Perfectly To The People Who Don't Want A Black Bond

"Isn't 007 supposed to be handsome?"

However, there were some people who couldn't understand why a black man could play the part of the fictional character.

American radio host Rush Limbaugh said on his show: "Now Sony is suggesting that the next James Bond should be Idris Elba, a black Briton rather than a white from Scotland. But that's not who James Bond is, and I know it's racist to probably even point this out."

He added: "We had 50 years of white Bonds because Bond is white. Bond was never black."

So Elba decided to tweet this wonderful response to the haters:

Isn't 007 supposed to handsome? Glad you think I've got a shot! Happy New year people.
