Simu Liu in trouble? We’ll see!
Screenshots from an old Reddit account purported to belong to Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings star Simu Liu have gone viral after resurfacing on Twitter.
The Reddit account that’s being tied to Liu, u/nippedinthebud, is no longer online. But screenshots tied to the account were posted on Twitter Thursday night with screenshots from r/aznidentity, a subreddit that has shared anti-Black sentiments in the past and has been linked to Men’s Rights Asians, a group often known for harassing outspoken Asian women.
“/u/nippedinthebud appears to be Simu Liu’s archived Reddit account,” @NebsGoodTakes wrote. “It shows him commenting in the racist incel subreddit called into question (among other things).”
Another thread featuring screenshots from u/nippedinthebud’s Reddit post history, including comments where he appears to be sympathetic toward pedophiles in 2015 in the context of discussing research he did for a role he played, noted that “From a biological standpoint it’s no different than being gay.”
The posts also include comments about girls’ ability to play sports and some thoughts on terrorists.
Several prominent Asian critics have also called out Liu for his reported link to r/aznidentity.
“For those asking for receipts, you won’t find any,” Edward Hong wrote. “All Reddit board and Twitter conversations have been scrubbed clean with specific MRA involvement. You can only go by the experiences of the API women who have been affected by Simu and more precisely his followers.”
