So Tilda Swinton messages Margaret Cho out of the blue (probably looking for an “Asian friend who isn’t offended!!”) and starts whitesplaining to her about how an Asian character being changed into a white woman is “diversity,” as if white women aren’t represented in the media WAY better than Asian men and women.
And Margaret Cho is polite and civil in this awkward, out-of-the-blue conversation with this entitled white woman who is convinced she can do no wrong, but we’re supposed to hate Margaret Cho because she admits that she was really bothered by it afterwards?
And Tilda leaks the e-mails as if this is another Kim Kardashian/Taylor Swift thing?
Literally all Tilda did was show that Margaret Cho was just tolerating you. Tilda still looks bad to me.
How is this a case of “HOMG TILDA SHOWED UP WITH RECEIPTS!” when the receipts literally tell us exactly what Margaret Cho said happened? How is Margaret Cho in the wrong for being rightfully annoyed by this?
Also why is Tilda pestering Margaret Cho and expecting HER to tell her what’s wrong with whitewashing Doctor Strange? Why can’t she do her own homework, especially when Asian actors like Ming Na Wen and George Takei have been VERY vocal about why they take issue with it?
This whole thing just rubs me the wrong way and I hate how it looks like it’s going to be spun as Margaret Cho just “looking for a fight” or whatever.
Fucking white women, man…
