Constance Wu And Ming-Na Wen Protest Hollywood’s Whitewashing Of “Ghost In The Shell”

When the first photo of Scarlett Johansson as the star of Ghost in the Shell dropped online on Thursday, fans of the beloved manga series took to Twitter in outrage. They denounced Hollywood for casting a white actor as a Japanese character from a distinctly Japanese narrative. Their anger was further fueled after it was reported that the film’s producers tested visual effects on Johansson that would make her appear more Asian.
