Academy to meet with Asian Hollywood figures after failed Oscars apology



  • 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.
