S.H.I.E.L.D star, Ming-Na Wen, took to Twitter to call out Netflix for leaving her name from the film’s credit list. Wen also noted the absence of her cast mate BD Wong in the credits despite having played a major role in the film.
Taking to twitter Ming-Na Wen demanded Netflix to rectify their oversight. Given their roles in the film, Wen described her and Wong’s absence from the credits as “EFF-ed up”.
Yeah, that’s EFF-ed up, @netflix!

The incident happpend after Twitter user @kroqkom noticed that Mulan actress Ming-Na Wen wasn’t credited by Netflix. It only named Miguel Ferrer (Shan-Yu), Harvey Fierstein (Yao) and June Foray (Grandmother Fa) as the main cast.
As the Ming-Na further pointed out in her post, Shang-Yu voice actor BD Wong is also not credited for his role as Shan-Yu in the film.
This gaff by Netflix isn’t helped when all actors of Asian decent were seemingly ignored from the original cast list.
A day after Ming-Na Wen called on Netflix out. Netflix changed the credits to include her, BD Wong and Eddie murphy who was bizzairely left out from his role as the dragon Mushu.
Ming-Na Wen will return to season 6 of the S.H.I.E.L.D playing Melinda May on the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. television series.
