Second of all... so? She has the right to support whatever she feels should be supported, regardless of her race. Judging someone's opinion based on their race is racist, quite frankly.
What the skreeonk? Where did I say anything about race or disregarding her opinion because of her race?
Anyway if you want evidence, I’d suggest Variety’s article:
But comparable Chinese nationalist troll accounts continue to proliferate on Twitter, and “Mulan” star Liu has become their mascot and muse since she re-posted a meme last week from the Communist Party mouthpiece, the People’s Daily, that said: “I support the Hong Kong police,” along with a heart emoji. Her post on Weibo went up the day after the U.N. Human Rights office accused the police of “employing less-lethal weapons in ways that are prohibited by international norms and standards.”
In short, the *official* newspaper of China’s ruling political party tweets a statement supporting HKPD (current law states China may have no political involvement in the affairs of HKPD) and Liu retweets it. Yes, she’s entitled to her opinion, but that doesn’t mean she’s right. She’s now vouched her support for an organization which the UN itself has accused of human rights violations.
article goes on to state that there’s ample evidence of “state-run bots” using the upcoming film to antagonize and victimize the Hong Kong protestors.
But yeah I’m sure I’m just a racist somehow, lmao.
