The first trailer for the film led to accusations that Roland Emmerich had "whitewashed" the historical events depicted by creating a fictional white protagonist. Emmerich and others associated with the production defended his casting choices but a year after the film's failure Emmerich continued to engender controversy with claims that the Stonewall riots were a "white event" and blaming the failure on the initial whitewashing complaints.
