Bruce Lee’s daughter Shannon Lee blasts in anger on Quentin Tarantino as portraying the role Bruce Lee as caricature in the film ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.’
Shannon had stated that they have treated their father’s role no way other than how the White Hollywood treated him when he was alive. In a recent interview after the films premiere, she stated “He comes across as an arrogant, 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.”
In the film Bruce Lee’s character is seen taking a duel with Brad Pitt’s character and the duel eventually ends up in a draw. She further added on “I can understand all the reasoning behind what is portrayed in the movie. I understand that the two characters are antiheroes and this is sort of like a rage fantasy of what would happen… and they’re portraying a period of time that clearly had a lot of racism and exclusion, I understand they want to make the Brad Pitt character this super bad who could beat up Bruce Lee. But they didn’t need to treat him in the way that white Hollywood did when he was alive.”
She had also stated that her father was eventually was challenged by many people in the industry however he did not take them serious. Bruce Lee was known for his Martial Arts and he was seen in many of the blockbuster film such as ‘Enter The dragon’ and ‘Fist of Fury.’ Bruce Lee passed away on in 1973 aged only 32.
