In case you haven't heard, there's a bit of a controversy over Marvel's Doctor Strange - in particular, the casting of Tilda Swinton (a white woman) to play a character named "The Ancient One", who was depicted as an Asian male in the comic book lore.

One of the writers of the mystical saga has replied to the accusations of "whitewashing" the role of "The Ancient One", and he didn't spare any words -
