Bruce Lee’s daughter has spoken as much as say she finds Quentin Tarantino’s tackle her father exhausting.
“I’m actually f – – king uninterested in white males in Hollywood attempting to inform me who Bruce Lee was,” Shannon Lee wrote in a Hollywood Reporter visitor column response to the director’s feedback about her dad made on Joe Rogan’s Spotify podcast.
“The place I’m coming from is … I can perceive his daughter having an issue with it, it’s her
f – – king father! I get that. However anyone else? Go suck a d – – okay,” the 58-year-old auteur advised Rogan in response to months of backlash about his controversial depiction of the late actor in “As soon as Upon a Time … in Hollywood.”
“[While] I’m grateful that Mr. Tarantino has so generously acknowledged to Joe Rogan that I’ll have my emotions about his portrayal of my father, I’m additionally grateful for the chance to precise this,” Lee responded Friday.
“I’m uninterested in listening to from white males in Hollywood that he was boastful and an a – – gap after they don’t know and can’t fathom what it may need taken to get work in Sixties and ’70s Hollywood as a Chinese language man with (God forbid) an accent, or to attempt to categorical an opinion on a set as a perceived foreigner and individual of colour. I’m uninterested in white males in Hollywood mistaking his confidence, ardour and talent for hubris and subsequently discovering it essential to marginalize him and his contributions. I’m uninterested in white males in Hollywood discovering it too difficult to consider that Bruce Lee may need actually been good at what he did and perhaps even knew learn how to do it higher than them.”
And in Tarantino’s case, she wrote, he by no means even met her father. Nonetheless, the director “fortunately dressed the Bride in a knock-off of my father’s yellow jumpsuit and the Loopy 88s in Kato-style masks and outfits for ‘Kill Invoice,’ which many noticed as a love letter to Bruce Lee. However love letters often deal with the recipient by title, and from what I may observe on the time, Mr. Tarantino tried, apparently, to keep away from saying the title Bruce Lee as a lot as potential again then.”
In conclusion, she tells Tarantino, whereas “I actually don’t care when you like him or not … within the curiosity of respecting different cultures and experiences you could not perceive, I might encourage you to take a cross on commenting additional about Bruce Lee and rethink the influence of your phrases in a world that doesn’t want extra battle and fewer cultural heroes.”
