It appears The Hollywood Reporter is still unable to identify different Asian people.
Barely two months after using a random Asian woman’s face to depict Oscar-winning director Jessica Yu in an article, the media outlet has made the same glaring mistake.
Asian visibility in Western media has long been a hot-button topic. One of the few forms of entertainment in which Asian people have found mainstream success is in comedy. Whether it be in the realm of standup, sketch comedy or YouTube videos, Asian comedians have found a place to express themselves in American media.
Comedian Joel Kim Booster posted a screenshot on October 14 showing a movie script with a callous line about interracial relationships, prompting Booster to tweet “Hollywood is poison!!!!” in the caption.
