Simu Liu made headlines when he clapped back at an article that claimed a “single actor appears to be getting the bulk of Asian male roles in Hollywood.” And now the actor is getting serious heat for clapping back at a TikTok video online where a woman called the actor out for “not being able to handle criticism.”

The headlines around Simu Liu have picked up a lot lately with people on social media giving their hot takes, some of which have gotten responses from the star. 

Behind The Recent Headlines

This all started back in April of 2023 when the “Barbie” movie got backlash for casting the Marvel actor. Users on Twitter were not happy to see the Shang-Chi star in the film after a series of Reddit posts resurfaced online. One person online tweeted “The Simu Liu hate is not because he’s asian. It’s because he’s a reddit incel who compared being gay to pedifilia and is anti black.

The posts in question from 2015, came from an account titled “nippedinthebud” with Simu Liu’s name reportedly attached to it. According to screenshots, the users wrote a disturbing statement about pedophilia and likened it to being gay. Liu never addressed the comments nor confirmed that it was his account. 

In 2019, Liu took to Twitter to call the platform a “slanderous place.”


Just recently, the actor also came under fire for calling Air Canada staff members unpleasant and rude in an Instagram story. The post read “@aircanada staff at Pearson are a combination of the best and worst of humanity. The best go above and beyond for people who are trying to brave horrendous airport lines to try and get to their destination. The worst are completely apathetic and use the crowds as punching bags.” 

The star even messaged the writer of the op-ed that called him a “thirst trap” for his casting in the “Barbie” movie with the writer responding to it via TikTok.
