The Netflix show ‘Beef’ had a lot of buzz surrounding it, with stars Steven Yeun and Ali Wong as well as creator Lee Sung Jin receiving praise for their work. However, recent controversy surrounding one of the show’s actors, David Choe, has left some viewers feeling disappointed.
Choe’s comments about “rapey behavior” have resurfaced and caused a backlash towards him and the show. In response, Yeun, Wong, and Jin released a statement expressing their disappointment and support for survivors of sexual assault.
For some viewers, Choe’s involvement in the show has ruined their excitement to watch it. It’s understandable that individuals may not want to support the work of someone accused of such serious misconduct. It’s important to hold individuals accountable for their actions and for companies to take a stand against harmful behavior.
It’s a shame that Choe’s actions have overshadowed the hard work of the rest of the ‘Beef’ team. The show has received positive reviews for its portrayal of Asian-American culture and family dynamics. It’s important to remember that the actions of one individual should not negate the work of others.
Ultimately, it’s up to each individual to decide if they want to continue supporting ‘Beef’ and its creators. It’s important to prioritize the voices and experiences of survivors and hold individuals accountable for their actions.
