The squeaky wheel gets the motor oil at Hawaii Five O?

I just love the entertainment media with their crying crocodile tears over the departures of actors Masi Oka, Daniel Dae Kim and actress Grace Park from the updated television series "Hawaii Five O". The reason that Kim and Park left the series after seven seasons is due to lack of pay compared to their co-stars on the television that has the late actor Jack Lord and the late James MacArthur rolling in their graves. Have these plebeians know that an actor or entertainer gets paid by their bosses their market value regardless of their ethnicity? I guess not. Now some plebeians in the entertainment media are painting the Columbia Broadcasting Service (CBS) as racist after the next season of "Hawaii Five O" will not have American actors of Asian descent on their show. Please cry me tears from Gatun Lake which is located in Panama which is an artificial lake south of Colon Panama on the Atlantic side of the Isthmus. Maybe juts maybe Park, Oka and Kim are tired of being on the television show and are using the equal pay card to leave the show.

It's also likely they don't want to be typecast in those roles, they want to move on to new characters. I'll miss them, they provided a lot of texture to the plots and without them I don't think the show would have made it past the first season.

That train of thought was also on my mind since I know a lot of actors that played either super hero or detective roles on television that lamented they were typecast as those characters like former Charlie's Angel Cheryl Ladd who lamented that playing the role of one of the Charlie Townsend detectives typecast as a dumb blonde.
