Hawaii Five-N0!

Big shakeup on Friday night drama. Two main cast members quit because of racism and sexism.

Two major characters are going to be written out of Friday's hit drama Hawaii Five-0. It may be the end of the road for the hit CBS show because fans are going to debate whether the move was smart or stupid.

Will viewers watch the show knowing that two of the main cast left the show on the grounds of racism and sexism?

Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park quit the show after contractual obligations went south. It dealt with the way they were getting paid.

Alex O'Loughlin and Scott Caan made 15% more than the most of the cast.

Kim and Park been on the show since Season 1. They should be entitled to the same pay.

CBS Television Studios said, "The show must go on! We wish them well."

It's infuriating to see in Hollywood still running on ancient times. The roles for people of color are often less about the money, it's mainly about the body.

Even in "liberal" Hollywood, a bunch of dicks call the shots on who gets paid, who is cut and what continues on another season. Hollywood still has white boardrooms, white actors making more and lack of diversity on their primetime lineups.

They sidelined Last Man Standing, 2 Broke Girls, Rosewood, Girls and now two main actors in Five-0.

The shakeup has caused a backlash and I want to know how you feel about this decision.

Post your thoughts on the matter.

CBS really messed up with this one!
