When Tom Hardy promoted his “The Drunkest District in the World” in 2012, he had no idea what one awkward statement would turn out to be for him. The Venom star has been dubbed a racist, and the release of a sequel to the superhero film in China is now in jeopardy.

The British actor in one of his interviews recalled the film “Tea Ceremony” with Marlon Brando, in which the great Frenchman played the Japanese. Hardy had the nerve to call him Chinese – after that, Asians got angry at Tom, jeopardizing Sony’s hopes for decent fees.
“He still has a large fan base in China, but Tom’s statements were considered offensive and even racist. Now “Venom 2” may be denied a rental license in China, because he called the Japanese character Chinese, ” Variety shares the details of the“ racist conflict ” .
