Tilda Swinton brought receipts to this "feud"!
On Friday, Margaret Cho gave an interview about an alleged uncomfortable conversation she had with Tilda about Doctor Strange. Apparently the two had a discussion on how the actress, as a white woman, should handle playing a role initially written as Tibetan in the Doctor Strange comics.

In Cho's discussion with the host of the TigerBelly podcast, she insinuated this conversation went poorly, with Swinton allegedly treating her like her "house Asian" and "servant".
The funny woman claimed:
"She said she didn't understand why people were so mad about Doctor Strange and she wanted to talk about it, and wanted to get my take on why all the Asian people were mad. [She] was like, ‘Could you please tell them…' I'm like, ‘Bitch, I can't tell them…I don't have a yellow phone under a cake dome.'"
Well, it looks like there's two sides to this story because Tilda's rep just released emails of their exchange to Jezebel… and things just got REALLY confusing.
The Doctor Strange star seems eager to learn about the diversity debate while Cho seems more than happy to help her.
