Constance Wu is the latest actress to lash out against the lack of diversity in Hollywood.
On Friday, the "Fresh Off the Boat" star posted a statement on Twitter that blasted Matt Damon's upcoming film, "The Great Wall." In the film, the 45-year-old actor plays a soldier in ancient China who defends the Great Wall against a mythical attack.
The casting decision quickly attracted the attention — and disapproval — of Wu. "We have to stop perpetuating the racist myth that a only white man can save the world. It's not based in actual fact," she wrote. "Our heroes don't look like Matt Damon. They look like Malala. Ghandi. Mandela."
