Description

The upcoming adaptation of Doctor Strange has faced much criticism for the casting of actress Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One and mentor to Stephen Strange. In the comic books the Ancient One is a wise Oriental master of the mystical. Moviegoers were disappointed that the role had not gone to an Asian actor. The casting choice continued the ongoing discussion about Hollywood whitewashing which seems to have reached a boiling point. Now, director Scott Derrickson has also responded to the criticisms on Twitter, writing, "Raw anger/hurt from Asian-Americans over Hollywood whitewashing, stereotyping & erasure of Asians in cInema. I am listening and learning." http://screenrant.com/doctor-strange-scott-derrickson-whitewashing/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit Entertainment using http://wochit.com
