'Crazy Rich Asians' Director Responds to Brenda Song Saying She Wasn't 'Asian Enough' to Audition

Jon M. Chu, the director of Crazy Rich Asians, is setting the record straight on Brenda Song‘s comments about his movie.

In a newly released interview with Teen Vogue, the 31-year-old actress claimed that she wasn’t allowed to audition for the movie because they said she wasn’t “Asian enough” for a role.

Now Jon is responding on Twitter to Brenda‘s comments saying he feels “horrible” that she would think that.

“🤷🏻‍♂️would these words ever come out of my mouth? Nope makes no sense,” John tweeted. “I feel horrible she thinks this is the reason. The fact is I love Brenda Song and am a fan. I didn’t need her to audition because I already knew who she was!”

Brenda has not yet responded to Jon‘s response.
