The show, created by “Sicario” scribe Taylor Sheridan, recently cast “One Tree Hill” and “Teen Wolf” actress Kelsey Asbille as a Native American woman and wife of an ex-Navy SEAL. Asbille and Sheridan previously worked together on his soon-to-be-released film, “Wind River”.

Seeing the casting news, Beach took to Instagram to decry the decision and Hollywood’s continued diversity problems.
