A similar situation appeared to be playing out yesterday following an announcement by "Saturday Night Live" that they would be hiring on three new cast members for their 45th season: "SNL" writer Bowen Yang, improv comedian Chloe Fineman and stand-up Shane Gillis. Good racism. The celebratory atmosphere that Bowen Yang's hiring prompted was almost immediately supplanted by criticism of "SNL" hiring practices when Gillis' material was exposed to a wider audience.
Netflix 's new movie Rim of the World has been called out on social media for its jokes against Asian and black people. Perhaps taking inspiration from the likes of IT: Chapter One and Stranger Thingsthe sci-fi adventure follows four teenagers trying to destroy an alien mothership that is terrorising the planet.

Is there an asian joke that will make you laugh right now. Why Asians are so nice to you? Because they want your money.
Even as host Chris Rock directly criticized the Oscars for their lack of diversity during the Academy Awards broadcast on February 28, he pointed out yet another blindspot for Hollywood and race. The statement came after two-time Oscar winner Ang Lee joined a group of 25 Academy members of Asian descent in writing a letter protesting the joke. Instead, the Oscars show was marred by a tone-deaf approach to its portrayal of Asians.
