Marvel's Simu Liu Explains Why He Deleted Negative Tweet About Mark Wahlberg, His New Co-Star

Marvel star Simu Liu, who is set to star in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, is being called out for deleting a negative tweet he sent out in 2018 about Mark Wahlberg.

“Let me get this straight,” Simu, 31, posted on his Twitter account in 2018. “Mark Wahlberg beat a helpless Vietnamese man with a stick until he passed out when he was 16, and is attempting to get the courts to grant him an official pardon on the basis that he’s ‘turned his life around’?”

If you don’t know, Mark physically assaulted Johnny Trinh back in 1988. He was convicted of two counts of assault and battery, and Johnny since has forgiven Mark for his crime.

Recently, Simu was cast alongside Mark in Arthur The King: The Dog Who Crossed The Jungle To Find A Home, and his past deleted tweet went viral again.

Marvel Actor Simu Liu Rejects Andrew Yang's Message to Asian Americans

Simu Liu will become a household name for Marvel fans next year when his upcoming movie Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is released and he also stars in the Netflix series Kim’s Convenience.

The 30-year-old actor, who was born in China and grew up in Canada, took to Twitter on Thursday (April 2) to respond to a statement made by former U.S. Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang.

Yang spoke out about the racial hostility towards Asian-Americans during the current pandemic.

“We Asian Americans need to embrace and show our American-ness in ways we never have before. We need to step up, help our neighbors, donate gear, vote, wear red white and blue, volunteer, fund aid organizations, and do everything in our power to accelerate the end of this crisis,” he wrote in a Washington Post piece. “We should show without a shadow of a doubt that we are Americans who will do our part for our country in this time of need. Demonstrate that we are part of the solution. We are not the virus, but we can be part of the cure.”

Simu was not supportive of this statement at all.

“That’s a no for me, dawg,” Simu wrote on Twitter. “At a time where Asian diaspora from around the world are experiencing massive racism and discrimination, @AndrewYang basically just told us to suck it up, eat a cheeseburger and buy an American flag. Our community unequivocally rejects this piece.”

Simu later added, “Clarifying tweet: I wholeheartedly support the idea that all of us (human beings) step up in this time of crisis and do our part. Andrew‘s angle is, however, horribly misguided and tone-deaf. I know he can and will do better in the future.”

He is currently self-isolating under the recommendation of his doctor. While he waits for the results of the test, we are suspending 1st unit production in an abundance of caution until he gets the results this coming week. Second unit and off production will continue as normal. We will reach out to everyone by Tuesday for the latest update.

This is an unprecedented time. We appreciate everyone’s understanding as we work through this.”

Marvel's Simu Liu Shoots His Shot, Asks Sharon Stone What She's Doing in 6 Months

Actor Simu Liu is shooting his shot with actress Sharon Stone!

The 30-year-old Marvel star – who will portray superhero Shang-Chi in the upcoming Marvel film Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings – actually responded to Sharon Stone‘s post about being blocked from using the app Bumble.

“I went on the @bumble dating sight and they closed my account. Some users reported that it couldn’t possibly be me! Hey @bumble, is being me exclusionary ? Don’t shut me out of the hive,” Sharon, 61, tweeted, and Simu replied back, “Hey, I don’t have bumble but uh… what are you doing like six months from now?”

Fans quickly began responding to Simu praising him for shooting his shot with the legendary actress.

Simu Liu Reveals What Tom Hiddleston Said to Him After Being Named Marvel's First Asian Superhero!

Simu Liu is on the cover of Bay Street Bull Magazine‘s Fall 2019 issue, out now.

Here’s what the 30-year-old Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings actor and Marvel‘s first Asian superhero had to say…

On reactions to the announcement: “I don’t know what I was expecting, but everybody that I talked to was very open. I especially appreciated Tom Hiddleston. We got in the elevator together to go to the green room and I was like, ‘Hey, man. I’m such a huge fan of yours.’ He had no idea who I was. So, I was like, ‘I’m going to play Shang-Chi.’ And he was like, ‘Oh man. Amazing. Welcome!’ Me being me, and being such a huge Loki fan, I asked him for any words of advice or wisdom.

On Tom Hiddleston’s advice: “He told me, ‘Don’t be afraid to put yourself into the role. Don’t be afraid to contribute your ideas and your thoughts because the wrong thing to do in this situation would be to show up to work and ask other people what is required of you.’ He said, ‘If I want anything for you, it would be to charge head-first into this and not be afraid to commit, pitch ideas, and be totally unapologetic in doing so.’ I found that so useful. I’ve been living by those words ever since. It’s just this idea of being proactive rather than letting this opportunity run me over.”

On what the role means to him: “I’ve always had a special attachment to superheroes. They’re like the modern-day equivalent of Greek heroes and almost transcend culture. The fact that we now have an Asian character who is among that pantheon, and not just in an auxiliary way, but really his own character with his own movie, I think, is extremely profound. I just think back to what it was like for me growing up and not having somebody like that to, for example, dress up as for Halloween. It sounds absurd, but I truly think that when you don’t see yourself represented in that way, it can really affect your idea of what is possible for you.”
