Golden Globes Host Sandra Oh Calls Out Emma Stone for Playing an Asian Woman. She Screams Her Apology

Actress Emma Stone screams another apology as the hosts of the 2019 Golden Globe Awards called her out for “whitewashing” during their opening dialogue.

In 2015, Stone learned a tough lesson about whitewashing after she starred in a movie called “Aloha.”

“Aloha” was a romantic comedy about a woman of Hawaiian and Asian heritage, which was played by Stone, who is of neither Hawaiian or Asian descent.

However, per her apology in 2015, Stone said that the character wasn’t supposed to look Hawaiian or Asian.

She said, according to The Guardian:

“I’ve become the butt of many jokes. I’ve learned on a macro level about the insane history of whitewashing in Hollywood and how prevalent the problem truly is. It’s ignited a conversation that’s very important. […]

The character was not supposed to look like her background which was a quarter Hawaiian and a quarter Chinese.”

During hosts’ Andy Sandberg and Sandra Oh’s opening dialogue at the start of the 2019 Golden Globes, Oh — who is best known for her role as Cristina in Grey’s Anatomy — discussed how great it was for the movie, “Crazy Rich Asians,” to have been nominated.

She then went on to say:

[“Crazy Rich Asians”] is the first studio film with an Asian American lead since “Ghost in the Shell” and “Aloha.”

To which Stone, who was sitting in the audience, screamed:

“I’m sorry!”

Watch the full moment unfold below:

Hundreds of people were quick to tweet about the joke and Stone’s swift reaction:

Neither actress has addressed the joke personally yet.

  1. They’re actors, they pretend to be people that they aren’t. What the hell is she supposed to do sorry for? If these idiots had a brain they’d be dangerous.
