The title of one woman's post sparked this shitstorm-
It's too ugly to repeat.
And here's the response that somehow isn't being published on the site...
Hey, Tommy Pistol and I'd like to chime in here. As the writer and director of The Walking Dead parody I'd like clear up a few things. First, I am puzzled why I wasn't contacted for comments and where you aquired your "facts"? Yes, this a blog, not a newspaper or publisher, but for the amount of people reading- you owe it to your audience to be accurate. I address many of these questionable facts in my blog -www.whoistommypistol.blogspot.com But I want to entertain one here- that Glenn's ethnicity is ACTUALLY IMPORTANT see below
"Much-deserved credit certainly goes to comic book creator and television series executive producer Robert Kirkman for crafting a multidimensional character. He explains his inspiration for Glenn via email: “My oldest friend is from Atlanta and is Korean, so I thought of him when I was choosing Glenn’s ethnicity. It’s important to me to try and accurately portray the world as it is, i.e., not all white, like some comics do. That said, I wanted Glenn to be resourceful and strong, a character Rick (played by Andrew Lincoln) could lean on when he needed to … not ‘the Asian guy.’” (http://iamkoream.com/october-cover-story-into-the-deep-end-with-the-walking-deads-steven-yeun/)
To be honest, I din't give casting a second thought. Danny is endearing. He is strong and cavalier. He fit's Glenn's character to a T. Minus the fact he is not Korean. But there are no Korean-Americans in porn right now. SO we had to use what we were privileged to have- a great cast. Did you know our parody's Michonne is actually an Irish actress? Yep, I said Irish. What is "black" anyhow Jezebel.com???? ( "found a black actress to play the part of Katana-swinging Michonne.") To use Kenni would mean using a Thai actor with a distinctly British accent, and that wouldn't have been believable either. We made a comedic parody and in my opinion, your site has made our movie ugly. Using the terms "Yellowface" and "Blackface" are ugly, racist, derogatory and should never be used by anyone. Please stop while you are ahead and still have readers. We don't want anyone to think this site is racist, right?
