Shannon Lee: I’m really fucking tired of white men in Hollywood trying to tell me who Bruce Lee was.



Shannon Lee, the daughter of Bruce Lee is tired of Quentin Tarantino. She wrote a column for THR about Tarantino's comments about Bruce Lee.

I’m tired of hearing from white men in Hollywood that he was arrogant and an asshole when they have no idea and cannot fathom what it might have taken to get work in 1960s and ’70s Hollywood as a Chinese man with (God forbid) an accent, or to try to express an opinion on a set as a perceived foreigner and person of color. I’m tired of white men in Hollywood mistaking his confidence, passion and skill for hubris and therefore finding it necessary to marginalize him and his contributions. I’m tired of white men in Hollywood finding it too challenging to believe that Bruce Lee might have really been good at what he did and maybe even knew how to do it better than them.
