Creator of "Iron Fist" Blasted Ignorant Critics

Roy Thomas and Stan lee
"Iron Fist" was highly praised by Marvel fans, including those who knew the source material, from uneducated and ignorant about the comic history and critics who wants to promote their twisted desire to see an unworthy and untalented Asian man to play the lead character Danny Rand. Many supporters are coming out to defend the casting of white actor Finn Jones as opposed to somebody superficial like Lewis Tan.

Roy Thomas, one of the co-creators of the "Iron Fist" original comics, was asked about the imaginary controversy and had the most appropriate and stinging rebuke for those who want to single mindedly promote Asian visibility in whatever form and whether or not it was in the original story or not.

"I try not to think about it too much," he told Inverse. "I have so little patience for some of the feelings that some people have. I mean, I understand where it's coming from. You know, cultural appropriation, my god. It's just an adventure story.

"Don't these people have something better to do than to worry about the fact that Iron Fist isn't Oriental, or whatever word? I know Oriental isn't the right word now, either.

"I just think some people have too much time on their hands, I guess. They have an infinite capacity for righteous indignation. By and large, that tends to be misplaced quite often because if you’re becoming all upset over things that are just stories, and if you don’t like it, instead of trying to change somebody else’s story, go out and make up your own character and do a good job of it. That's just fine, but why waste time trying to run down other people's characters simply because they weren't created with your standards in mind?"

Good response to all snowflake and diversity proponent. Here's one more advise:
"To all liberals and leftist supporters, make your own movie and use whatever character you want. Move on. Its over. Donald Trump is the U.S. President. Muslims are not welcome in many countries. Illegal aliens will be deported from the U.S. Canada, South Africa, Germany, France and Switzerland. Many countries shun gay marriage. Iron Fist is white and stick to Shang-Chi, unless you don't who he is as well."
