Henry Golding, the British-Malaysian lead male actor, had the word “pathetic” scribbled across his face.

The lead actress Constance Wu, popularly known for her role on EastSiders and Fresh Off the Boat, had the comments “stupid chinx” and “money laundering thiefs” written across her body.

The Twitter user turned her account private shortly after but not before film director Jon M. Chu shunned the racial comments, says NextShark.

Crazy Rich Asians is set to release in theatres on Wednesday, August 15, 2018.
