Ali Wong is one of the baddest women in Hollywood and has been killing it on Netflix with her two comedy specials, her animated show Tuca & Birdie and her upcoming romantic comedy Always Be My Maybe which star Wong, Randall Park, and Daniel Dae Kim to name a few. During an interview with Ellen, she jokes about being able to kiss so many hot guys in the movie.

“I kiss a lot of men. It’s like, ‘Who wrote this movie, right?'” she said. “I kiss a lot of sexy men. I kiss Daniel Dae Kim. I kiss Keanu Reeves.”

Wong co-wrote the film with Park (who plays her childhood friend/love interest) and Michael Golamco. Of course, there were those who decided to say “if this was a woman saying this, people would feel a way!”

And it’s like one, I thought feminists were the ones who couldn’t take a joke calm down fam. Two, Wong co-write the film, it was an idea that she came up with Park and Keanu Reeves wanted to work with her because he was a fan of her comedy. It was a joke about a fun project and if Kim or Reeves said they felt uncomfortable I’d understand the claim, but it’s really just an attempt to do a bunch of bad faith “what-about-isms.”
