Gene Maddaus Senior Media WriterFaizon Love filed a lawsuit on Wednesday accusing Universal of race discrimination when it cut him out of the poster for the 2009 film “Couples Retreat.”The film featured four couples who go to a resort to repair their relationships.

Love and his co-star, Kali Hawk, played the only non-white couple, and they were removed from the poster when the film opened overseas.In a statement accompanying the suit, Love alleged he was the victim of whitewashing.“This film was a big money-maker for Universal, but instead of honoring my work and my contract, the studio chose to render me invisible to billions of moviegoers around the world,” he said.The deletion stirred controversy at the time.
