According to the Tumblr page Hunger Games Tweets, a crop of racist remarks concerning the film's diverse cast -- particularly aimed at the characters Rue (Amandla Stenberg) and Thresh (Dayo Okeniyi) -- began appearing in the Twitterverse over the weekend.

Collins took to Facebook today to pen a letter to her faithful "Hunger Games" readers, saying "I'm really happy with how [the movie] turned out. I feel like the book and the film are individual yet complementary pieces that enhance one another.

Beaufoy is tapping away at his MacBook (just a guess) under the supervision of Gary Ross, the director behind the first "Hunger Games" movie who is also set to direct the sequel, The Wrap reports.
