Twitter is criticizing actress Awkwafina after she said in an interview with Vice that she doesn’t audition for roles where she’d have to use an Asian accent or mock the Asian community, but is seemingly OK with misappropriating Black Americans.

Last year, The Chronicle detailed how some people have condemned the actress for using “Black aesthetics” in order to rise to fame. 

“Awkwafina has made a career out of performing a caricatured interpretation of Blackness,” Hannah Miao, a journalist for The Chronicle wrote.

“Coopting African American Vernacular English (AAVE), speaking in a 'blaccent' and playing characters that could be interpreted as minstrel-esque, Awkafina has worn Blackness like a costume, putting it on when it commercially rewards her ('Crazy Rich Asians' and 'Oceans 8')” she continued.

She rose to fame in 2012 after her song “My Vag” went viral where she rapped about her private area, all while using a gangster-like persona. She’s also known for her breakout role in Crazy Rich Asians where she used a “Blaccent” and slang that’s widely used in the Black community.

In a now-viral tweet, a user published a quote from the actress that stated “I’m not OK with someone writing the Asian experience for an Asian character. I make it very clear, I don’t ever go out for auditions where I feel like I’m making a minstrel out of our people.”

People took to Twitter to share their thoughts about the actress standing up for her community, yet having no issue with misrepresenting the Black community.

One user stated that she considered the actress to be canceled for using a "Blaccent" in her past roles.

One user who is a fan of the actress' work stated that she deserves the backlash.

The actress will be starring in Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings scheduled to be released this September.
