Megan Boone Cast on Blue Bloods, Jennifer Esposito Accuses CBS of Racism
Things are turning very ugly very quickly between Jennifer Esposito and CBS.
As previously reported, the actress was let go by Blue Bloods earlier this week in a move she referred to as "shameful" because she claims she simply asked for a temporary leave in order to deal with a medical situation.
In her place as Danny's partner, Megan Ketch will come on board as a temporary replacement, while Deadline now confirms Megan Boone has been cast in the same role for an upcoming three episode arc. The actress has an option to become a series regular.
In response to Boone's casting, Esposito took to Twitter and lashed out.
“There it is. CBS got rid of the only minority cast member so they can have an ALL WHITE CAST like CSI,” she wrote.
Blue Bloods airs a new episode tonight.
