Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Chloe Bennet: I changed my last name from “Wang” because “Hollywood is racist”

  • Responding to an Instagram commenter who noted a name change after posting about Hollywood white-washing, Bennet wrote, “Changing my last name doesn't change the fact that my BLOOD is half Chinese, that I lived in China, speak Mandarin or that I was culturally raised both American and Chinese. It means I had to pay my rent, and Hollywood is racist and wouldn't cast me with a last name that made them uncomfortable. I'm doing everything I can, with the platform I have, to make sure no one has to change their name again, just so they can get work.”
