We don’t know what to make of this.
The love story between Josh Chan and Kate Mulgrew in “Love,” a romantic comedy based on the novel of the same name, has been a hot topic for decades.
But, if you’ve watched any of the “Bachelorettes” or “Love” seasons, you know the film is about a man who, at the start of the show, falls in love with a beautiful woman he meets at a party.
Chan is cast as a college student who has never met his fiancé, who is also the host of a TV show.
Chan plays a guy who tries to connect with his fiancée, only to fall in love.
Chan’s character, Josh Chan, is a college dropout who falls in to a deep love for Kate Mulgrrew, a young and attractive host of the popular TV show “The Bachelor.”
But the film’s portrayal of the relationship, the characters’ interactions, and the themes surrounding it have been a divisive topic.
The film’s director, Sam Raimi, made a series of controversial comments about Chan and his character.
The controversy erupted after Chan was caught making homophobic and transphobic remarks during a screening of the film at the Toronto International Film Festival in August.
Chan had a brief pause during the screening to acknowledge the audience and apologize for his comments.
In his apology, Chan said he meant to say he wanted to be respectful.
“I’m a person of colour, I’m gay, I’ve had a lot of people tell me that I’m stupid,” Chan said, according to The Associated Press.
“But I am not stupid.
I am gay, and I have a very complex, very sensitive relationship with people.”
Raimis comments sparked outrage, with critics calling his comments homophobic and offensive.
Many, including a number of celebrities, have spoken out against Raims statements.
“This is so awful,” actor John Cho tweeted, calling Raimies remarks racist.
Chan, who has been open about his sexual orientation and has also appeared on Ellen, apologized to Mulgrree on Instagram.
“If there’s anything I can do to help you, please let me know,” Chan wrote.
Chan has since clarified his comments, saying he did not mean to imply Mulgrreys love for Chan was based on his sexuality.
“You know, I didn’t mean to hurt anybody, but I’ve just been really hurt,” Chan told The Associated Post.
“And I’m really sorry for it.
I really don’t care.”
Chan’s apology was a big blow to the film, which was set to open this weekend.
Chan told THR that he is looking forward to the rest of the season.
“We’re really excited to continue to be a part of this world and see what the future holds,” Chan tells The Associated Prt.
“It’s going to be so exciting to see what happens.”
In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said that Raimides remarks were not “inappropriate or offensive to any member of our community.”
“The Academy is aware of the comments made by Josh Chan,” the statement said.
“The comments are not reflective of the views of the Academy or the Academy membership.”
Chan is one of several actors who have been outspoken in their criticism of Raimises statements.
Actor Josh Brolin, who plays the love interest on “The Bacheloretts,” called out Raimities remarks in a recent tweet.
“My reaction was, ‘He’s going around and he’s saying these things to all these people,'” Brolin told The Hollywood Post.
“‘You’re stupid and gay, you’re not a real person.
You’re just a joke.'”
Brolin also posted a photo of himself holding a sign that reads “You’re a liar.
You are a disgrace to our culture.
Get the fuck out of my face.”
“I think that it’s a really sad thing to see that it feels like we’re trying to shame these people and to demean them and that it was a joke,” Brolin said of Riddell’s remarks.
“To me, it’s really disturbing and I’m sure it’s upsetting to a lot people.”
Chan has also spoken out about his feelings about Raim’s comments, telling the AP that he has “never felt so misunderstood.”
“It hurts my heart, because this was a story I wrote,” Chan says in the interview.
“These were the kinds of things that were written about me in the book.
I’m not going to take it back.
And I want to apologize to Josh for what he said.”
