Meghan Markle Attacks Hollywood over ‘Asian Stereotypes’

Meghan Markle Attacks Hollywood over 'Asian Stereotypes'

Meghan Markle is attacking decades-old films over “Asian stereotypes,” claiming that Mike Myers’ Austin Powers and Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill created “caricatures” of Asian women and made them appear “over-sexualized or aggressive.”

“Movies like Austin Powers and Kill Bill, they presented these caricatures of women of Asian descent as oversexualized or aggressive,” Markle said in the Tuesday episode of her Spotify podcast series Archetypes. “And it’s not just those two examples, there’s so many more.”

During the episode, Markle spoke to actress Margaret Cho about the so-called “Dragon Lady” stereotype.

“‘Dragon Lady’ comes from this — fantasy of orientalism,” Cho said. “It’s similar to the ‘femme fatale,’ in that a woman who is beautiful and deadly, because we can’t just be beautiful. It has to come at a cost.”
