She said the guy was totally her type and they went to a steakhouse for dinner. This is where their date began to turn south. 

The guy went on to talk about libertarianism and his hyper intellectualism eventually bored her. She suggested watching her favorite movie White Chicks in an attempt to salvage the date but he was not interested.

Awkwafina Blaccent Controversy- What Was The Drama About?

Awkwafina was involved in a blaccent controversy in the past. 

To those who don’t know what ‘blaccent’ means, the Urban Dictionary defines the word as a particular manner of speech, tone, or pitch that resembles a certain African American urban inner-city youth. 

Awkwafina was called out for her blaccent after the release of the 2018 hit movie Crazy Rich Asians. Fans pointed out her manner of speech seemed weird as she came from one of New York’s most plush neighborhoods. 

awkwafina is so strange for saying this. In one instance you don’t want Asian ppl do be stereotyped in film which is great but then you go on make a mockery of what you depict a blaccent despite having a normal speaking voice? It just doesn’t add up

The 33-year-old actress has been open about cultural approbation in the past and refused to do Asian accents for an Asian character. She admonished writers for using Asian tropes, according to The Focus.

It is probably why netizens did not appreciate her reliance on black stereotypes.
