"I'm not Randall Park"
Ronny Chieng has slammed People Magazine for misidentifying the cast of Crazy Rich Asians.
Ronny Chieng has called out People.com for misidentifying Asian actors from Crazy Rich Asians in a recent photo from the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
In the photo, Chieng was captured with Tan Khen Hua, Awkwafina, Ken Jeong and Fiona Xie. However, People captioned the photo “Jae W Suh, Randall Park, Awkwafina, Michelle Yeoh, Ken Jeong & Fiona Xie.”
On Instagram, Chieng shared a screenshot of People’s blunder, writing, “People that’s @khenghua not Jae W Suh. And I’m not Randall Park. People Michelle Yeoh is also NOT in this photo.”
Australian actor Remy Hii also spotted the mistake and shared it on Twitter with the caption, “
@people wants to talk minorities and underrepresentation, just doesn’t want to learn our names. Did I get that right?”
