As we’ve been reporting, Margaret Cho and Tilda Swinton are in a minor dust-up regarding an email conversation the two had several months ago about Doctor Strange, and Swinton being cast as The Ancient One — a character initially written as Tibetan.
And while the fallout started after Cho did a podcast interview, and Swinton responded by releasing the unedited email correspondence between the two women, now Cho has had a chance to get the final word.
Cho’s reps released the following comment from the comedian, a sort of final take on the interaction between her and Swinton (below):
“Asian actors should play Asian roles. I believe my emails stand on their own and should be taken for the spirit in which they were intended. I am grateful that the debate has now entered the national discussion and remain a huge fan of Tilda’s. Now I’m going to go fall asleep at a museum.”
What do U think, Perezcious readers?!
It’s no doubt a worthy conversation to have had between Swinton and Cho — where do you stand now having seen the entire issue as laid out by the two talented women?
