Liu made the remarks on July 27, 2021, while a guest on the Los Angeles Times podcast â€œAsian Enough,â€ which is about the experience of Asian Americans. She said that it all started as the cast of the film rehearsed a scene that had been reworked while Murray wasnâ€™t present.!
Liu said she initially didnâ€™t know that the insults were directed at her, because she was the last one cast and had the â€œleast amount of privilege in terms of creatively participating at that time.â€.
Liu said despite the confrontation, she has remained on friendly terms with Murray.
Shaun Oâ€™Banion, a production assistant on the film, took to social media in early July 2021 to add his own account of the incident, and also refuted rumors that the confrontation had become physical.
