I doubt they confused the Jackie Chan (成龍) for Bruce Lee (李小龍) because they share the same character, 龍 (Dragon), in their Chinese names.
In my quick edit, didn't mean to put "the" in front of Jackie Chan, lol. Both are great, but Bruce Lee's Asian American identity makes him more THE Bruce Lee for me.
Though I actually grew up watching Jackie Chan in Taiwan. Besides as a martial artist and comedic actor, I knew him as a singer and a dramatic actor too. Those identities of 成龍 don't even exist in the U.S.

The defense for calling coronavirus “Chinese” by claiming it blames the Chinese government, not Chinese Americans, ignores the racism that marks Asian Americans as foreign threats no matter their citizenship or generation.
I am in self-quarantine primarily for public health. A secondary reason? Protecting my mental and physical health from heightened anti-Asian racism.
Absolutely—the fact that non-Chinese Asian Americans (alongside Chinese Americans) are getting targeted by hate proves that racism has no discernment.

I saw #OnceUponATimeinHollywood in a strange city & felt like everyone was laughing at me when they laughed at Bruce Lee. I can only imagine how it was for Shannon Lee, who said, “It was really uncomfortable to...listen to people laugh at my father.”…
I had a meta moment of feeling like Bruce Lee watching ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ in the film ‘Dragon’ where everyone else was laughing but him. (Spoiler Alert) I also said, out loud, in the theater, “That’s not possible!” when Bruce was taken down by Cliff (played by Brad Pitt).
The problem is that the very few PoCs in #OnceUponATimeInHollywood are all stereotypes. I critiqued the lack of diversity back when the film’s cast was first announced.

Things that matter for inclusive writer’s rooms:
* Showrunner who is open to suggestions
* Being a senior level writer
* If you are a lower level writer, have a senior level writer ally

Networking is key for writers, even if you have an agent. “People have to hear your name 3 or 4 times from different people for you to get hired.” -@shindotB
