Comment on George Takei to Hollywood: “Quit Whitewashing Anime” by Anonymous:

Yeah actually you’re right about that, this story is american made by 2 american authors that infuse japanese animation artistry into it. In fact the creators are both graduates of the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design and even did stuff for well known animated sitcoms.

BTW they are not asian themselves, what truely made this movie awful was messing up the script, changing the designs from the show, actors not looking like their characters, and the names were changed or mispronounced.

The Fire Nation was played by Indian actors, all of whom overacted their parts and came off as …

    I hated that George took away a straight role from a straight person. They should have cast Sulu better and gotten someone that didn’t predominately suck cock. George should only be allowed to play gay roles. See what I did there… Idiots…
