  • Actor Simu Liu criticized the Mandarin spoken in the latest episode of the Disney Plus Marvel show “Moon Knight.”
  • "Alright Arthur Harrow needs to fire his Mandarin teacher,” Liu tweeted.
  • In the show’s second episode, the character Arthur Harrow, played by actor Ethan Hawke, is seen talking with a disciple in Mandarin.
  • As he kicks a ball toward the woman, she tells him that he “will always be a loser.” Hawke’s character seemingly responds in jest, saying, “You are dead.”
  • Mandarin speakers found the exchange incomprehensible as the phrases were used out of context.
  • YouTuber Disney Dwayne claimed that Hawke’s dialogue was “like a direct Google translation” and mentioned that Marvel Studios and Disney could have put more care into translating the phrases.

“Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” star Simu Liu recently took to Twitter to criticize the Mandarin used by a new Marvel character in the Disney Plus show “Moon Knight.”

After watching the episode, Liu took to Twitter and wrote, “Alright Arthur Harrow needs to fire his Mandarin teacher.”
