Alison Brie Says She Regrets Voicing Vietnamese-American Character on BoJack Horseman
He replied via a series of tweets, “It’s something I’m happy to talk about! I can stress when I’m asked about my mistakes (because I’m worried I’ll say the wrong thing ) But it is good for me to reflect them and I hope that seeing me do this will help others not to make the same mistakes! “
“In the first few seasons of BoJack, I was asked some time on Twitter and Reddit about the casting of Dionne, but I avoided the question, mostly because my own understanding of the issue was developing (it still Is!) And INN ‘. He said to want to give a defensive or semistructured answer. “I figured I’d write something when I was ready – like a blog post or Twitter thread – stating that I gave voice to an Asian character. For why I cast a white actress and why it was okay, but the more I thought about it (and listened) to other people) the more I felt it was okay. ”
He reported that after season 4, he was “never going to feel ‘ever ready’ to talk about it, and I just had to do it, be ready or not.”
Furthermore, this is not the first time a fan has raised these concerns. In January 2018, she addressed the issue after a fan asked why it was Bree, a white woman who was the voice of a Vietnamese-American character. “Short answer: I love my entire cast, but if I had been doing it today, I wouldn’t have done the show (or any show) with all the blondes. I really got sour on the idea of casting” color-blind “. Seems like an excuse not to pay attention at that time.
