Tilda Swinton Verbally SLAPS Margaret Cho



Word to the wise?

Don’t come for The Tilda!

Tilda 1, Margaret 0

Now, one would think that Margaret Cho would be the chieftain of drag-ation considering her pedigree and comedic talents, but not only has she met her match in Ms. Swinton, but she might want to shut the fuck up and take some damn notes. In this round of celebrity feuding, the proof is in the panty pudding!

Tilda is not the one!


When Margaret accused Hollywood of another incidence of whitewashing in casting – this time for Doctor Strange Tilda reached out and explained the backstory behind her taking the role and through a series of emails asked how to improve the current status quo in Hollywood. She also asked that the emails be kept private, but did Cho listen?


Says Cho:

“But it was a long, kind of a fight about why the part should not have gone to her, that’s what I thought. We had a fight about it and basically it ended with her saying, ‘Well I’m producing a movie and Steven Yeun is starring.’ It was weird because it was like I felt like a house Asian, like her servant, sort of her confidant. Like I was following her with an umbrella. I had a weird feeling about the whole exchange, especially the part about don’t tell anybody.”


When Oscar winner Swinton caught wind of Cho and her big mouth, she went in, released the emails, and flurried them with a series of verbal slaps…

“Please note the inaccuracies in Margaret’s assessment of their conversation, starting with her implication that they talked at length when they only e-mailed a few times. Also note that Margaret seemed to imply Tilda was trying to get points by saying she had just produced the film Okja with Steven Yeun when she only mentioned it after Margaret suggested that she produce a film with Asian actors.”

– verbal SLAP

Swinton let it be known that several roles in the film had changed ethnicities and even genders, and that Cho was basically a lying sack of shit.

But delivered as only a Scot from the Highlands can, of course.

Miss Cho?

Sit your ass down because it’s just been handed to you!
