Trini’s Last Name is not ‘Kwan’

Hey folks, I’m flailing over the Trimberly tag and all, but I remembered someone made a post of this before and wanted to share their message, in paraphrase: 

Trini the Yellow Power Ranger of the new 2017 movie does not have the surname ‘Kwan’.  As stated by Becky G, her actress, here on her Twitter account:

This is the original Yellow Ranger (Trini Kwan) from the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers (1993), Thuy Trang (may she rest in peace):

I do resent (read: very) the fact we keep getting whitewashed Asian works put into live action (@hollywood wOW), but it’s very clear they’re separate characters.

TL;DR in your fanfics/fanarts/fanposts, please don’t confuse Becky G’s character to be Thuy Trang’s character and don’t give her the last name ‘Kwan’!
