Actress Chloe Bennet is spearheading a campaign to get more Asian Americans to vote in the 2020 election.
Rock the vote: The “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” star, a known advocate for better Asian American representation in media, has joined producer Brad Jenkins (Funny or Die) in enlisting help from personalities to increase voter turnout, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Chinese American actress Chloe Bennet, famously known for her portrayal of Daisy “Skye” Johnson on the television series “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” has recently unveiled the trailer for her latest project with Dreamworks Animation.
“Abominable” tells an adorable story of a young Chinese girl named Yi, voiced by Bennet, who discovers a young Yeti on the roof of her Shanghai apartment building and soon embarks on an epic quest to reunite the magical creature with his family.
Multiple sources confirmed that the pair had called it quits more than a month ago, according to Just Jared.
Oh Chloe Bennet, honey, what are you doing??
Chloe Bennet has confirmed alleged reports that she is dating Logan Paul.
Responding to a Twitter user who questioned the relationship, the “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” star pointed out that the controversial YouTuber has changed her life “for the better” and that she has done the same in return.
While they have not officially announced that they are indeed back together, the romantically linked pair has recently been seen in public enjoying each other’s company.
Earlier today, Asian American actor Feodor Chin, who’s known for his role as the voice of Zenyatta from Overwatch, took to Twitter to share his thoughts on two of the biggest stories of 2018: Aziz Ansari’s sexual assault allegations and Logan Paul’s infamous “suicide forest” video.
Chin was attempting to make what he believed to be a joke, wondering if he should be more disappointed about Aziz Ansari’s recent accusations of sexual misconduct or Chloe Bennet’s alleged relationship with Paul, a Vine star-turned-YouTuber who has a history of racism against Asians even before his infamous trip to Japan.
Whitewashing in films and TV is a controversial issue — luckily, there are people working hard to make a positive change in the film/TV industry to promote better diversity in media.
ABC’s “Fresh Off the Boat” is one of the shows that has greatly helped make viewers more aware about the lack of diversity in Hollywood, and its efforts have certainly worked. According to one of the show’s lead stars, Randall Park, a lot of his Asian-American friends are seeing their projects come to fruition in the wake of his show’s success.
Logan Paul is known for his comedic videos on YouTube and Vine (RIP) but nobody is laughing after seemingly racist comments from the social media star recently surfaced.
A series of Twitter posts made by the 22-year-old actor and rumored boyfriend of Chloe Bennet — who has recently been criticized for changing her last name from Wang — from the past couple of years have been unearthed by netizens.
Earlier this week, actor Ed Skrein announced his resignation from his role in “Hellboy” to fight against Hollywood whitewashing.
His move was met with many praises from the Asian American community, among them was fellow actor Chloe Bennet, who plays Daisy Johnson in Marvel’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
When actress Chloe Bennet was just an up-and-comer in the entertainment industry about five years ago, she went by the name of Chloe Wang, her actual birth name.
In fact, in her brief stint as a pop star in China, she became quite well known as the singer Chloe Wang. For almost two years, she lived in Shanghai and was able to release a debut single “Uh Oh”.
Actress Chloe Bennet put Gigi Hadid and Steve Harvey on blast for making “ignorant” jokes after Hadid was caught on video mocking Asians by squinting her eyes.
“Dear Gigi Hadid, As a kid, (and frankly as an adult) people would make fun of me for being Chinese. For having ‘Asian eyes,’” the “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D” star posted on Instagram on Wednesday, accompanied by a cute throwback photo when she was a little girl. “I would laugh it off because it was always a ‘joke,’ and if I didn’t I was being ‘too sensitive.’”
