On Monday, Hii shared a screenshot on Twitter from “Crazy Rich Asians” co-star Ronny Chieng’s Instagram story (which Chieng also tweeted Tuesday) that showed a screenshot from People.com, where Chieng and actress Tan Kheng Hua were misidentified as actors Randall Park and Jae W. Suh at a SAG Awards after party. The photo caption also identifies Michelle Yeoh as being in the picture, although she is not.
“To the journalists consistently at fault, I refuse to believe you’ve never mistaken a Bomer for a Cavill, an Adams for a Fisher, a Hemsworth for a Hemsworth,” Hii tweeted, adding that it happens consistently to people of color.
“It’s always just an ‘honest mistake,’” Hii continued, before concluding in another tweet: “Do better.”
Hii didn’t link specifically to the article, but the photo appears on People.com in a slideshow of photos from the SAG Awards after party. As of Tuesday morning, the caption for the photo has been corrected.
