Oscars organisers to meet Ang Lee and George Takei over racial stereotyping https://t.co/FMiOPSgfru— Guardian Film (@guardianfilm) March 17, 2016
- Ang Lee and George Takei are among the figures scheduled to meet with organizers at the Academy of of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences after a failed apology regarding racist Asian jokes in this year's Oscars was issued.
- George Takei is cited as one of the critics, describing the apology as "bland," "corporate," and "patronizing."
- This meeting to discuss real steps towards addressing the "sensitivity issue" comes after Asian members of the Academy reportedly continued communication with the Academy over the issue and apology.
