Emma Stone plays an Asian-American in 'Aloha' and no one is impressed
In case you missed it, Cameron Crowe's new movie, 'Aloha', stars Bradley Cooper, Rachel McAdams, Bill Murray and Emma Stone and tells the story of "a down-on-his-luck military contractor who is given the opportunity to return to the site of his greatest career triumphs in Hawaii. While he goes in hope of professional redemption, he also seeks closure with a long-ago love and must deal with unexpected feelings for his partner on the project, a promising young Air Force pilot."

Nothing wrong with that... except for the awkward chemistry between Cooper and Stone... and the fact that the cast is almost entirely white. Oh yeah, and Stone plays an Asian-American named Allison Ng. How is this casting a real thing?

Actually, to be even more precise, she plays a character who is a quarter Hawaiian and a quarter Chinese. *crickets* Needless to say, no one was impressed. 
 
Admittedly, others were a little nicer: Now, here's the trailer again so you can see her in action:
WE DON'T GET IT.
