Bruce Lee’s daughter has hit out at Quentin Tarantino’s new film for treating her father “the way that white Hollywood did when he was alive”.
The film, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”, is written and directed by Tarantino and set in the late 1960s as a tribute to the final moments of Hollywood’s golden age.
Shannon Lee said she felt uncomfortable watching the film at the weekend as she sat in a cinema and listened to people “laugh at my father”.
“He comes across as an arrogant a–hole who was full of hot air, and not someone who had to fight triple as hard as any of those people did to accomplish what was naturally given to so many others,” she told entertainment website The Wrap.
Her criticism focused on a scene in which Bruce Lee, played by Mike Moh, trades insults with stuntman Cliff Booth, played by Brad Pitt, and challenges him to a fight on the set of “The Green Hornet” TV show.
