When Bob's Burgers creator Loren Bouchard and his collaborators announced last week that Kristen Bell was exiting her Central Park mixed-race Black role, a Twitter commenter tweeted: “Now do the same for our girl Marshmallow.” To which, Bouchard responded: "yes. on it." Marshmallow is voiced by white cisgender actor David Herman, best known for playing Michael Bolton in the movie Office Space. "Removing Herman from that role is a good step," says Alison Foreman. "But the problem with Marshmallow goes far beyond the actor who voices her. For years, Bob’s fans have expressed concern about how Marshmallow is (and isn’t) portrayed. While the Emmy-winning show is typically praised for its inclusive, warm messaging, it's been surprisingly obtuse in its handling of the show’s only Black trans character."
