Comedian Matt Rife has been accused of racism after posting a tweet that supposedly poked fun at cast members of Bong Joon-ho’s history-changing “Parasite” at the Academy Awards on Sunday night.

The 23-year-old actor, who recently appeared in “Fresh Off the Boat,” “joked” that everyone at the Oscars were “waiting to see if the cast of ‘Parasite’ coughs” — an apparent reference to the notion linking people of Chinese, Japanese and Korean origin to the spread of the deadly 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV).
