I would love it if George Takei would fucking publicly call out J.J. Abrams for the absolute fuckery that is casting Benedict Cumberbatch to play Khan Noonien Singh.
Because Mr. Takei has been such a strong vocal opponent of whitewashing
Because Mr. Takei himself was a pioneer and a role-model for Asian and POC actors in Hollywood
Because Mr. Takei is himself a Star Trek veteran and one of the most respected people in this franchise
Because Abrams and everyone involved in the Trek reboot loves George and took his opinion into account when it came to casting the last movie’s Sulu
Because Mr. Takei is fucking awesome and everyone loves him and because he’s hilarious and completely biting when he needs to be
I just want someone who actually has POWER and a VOICE and an AUDIENCE to shame the fuck out of the decision makers who made this horrible casting choice.
