Ming Na Wen Calls Out Netflix for Oversight


Apparently Netflix doesn’t think Asian Americans played any significant role in the Disney animated classic, Mulan.

An official description from the streaming site leaves out any mention of any Asian American involved in the production-including lead voices Ming Na Wen, who played the voice of Mulan, and B.D. Wong, who voiced Li Shang, Mulan’s love interest and son of General Li.

Mulan fan Dave Sanchez blasted Neflix for the omission and Wen didn’t hesitate to jump on board.

Yeah, that’s EFF-ed up, @netflix!

I also believe another AsianAm lead voice should also be on the credit. #bdwong How about all the #Mulan fans out there tweet @netflix about this major oversight? Thanks! ?? https://t.co/xRzcGL9qqq— Ming-Na Wen (@MingNa) January 1, 2019

According to Comicbook.com, Netflix has not yet responded to her New Year’s Eve tweet, but plenty of fans already have.
