Academy CEO Apologizes to Members of Asian Descent for Oscar Night "Hurt"

奥斯卡被指歧视亚洲人 美国电影学院CEO写道歉书
第88届奥斯卡奖争议不断,先是因提名几乎都是白人引争议,后主持人Chris Rock在典礼上调侃亚洲小孩一事,不仅让球星林书豪相当愤怒,大导演李安也跳出和20几位影艺学院亚洲会员联合发声明抗议,要求未来在奥斯卡典礼上,不会再出现歧视亚洲人桥段。
美国电影学院CEO Dawn Hudson就此事发表道歉书。
Dawn Hudson emailed the 25 Academy members who signed a letter of protest, calling their concerns "valid" and promising that "future Oscar telecasts [will] be more culturally sensitive."
Lee, George Takei and Sandra Oh — who sent a letter to her and the Academy's Board of Governors on Tuesday to protest racially insensitive jokes in last month's Oscars ceremony.
The brief response, which was emailed on Tuesday afternoon, acknowledged the members' criticisms — which centered on a skit in which host Chris Rock introduced three Asian children as Academy accountants and comments ad-libbed by presenter Sacha Baron Cohen that insinuated that Asians have small genitalia — are "valid."
Hudson emphasized that it "was never the Academy's intent to offend anyone" and that the organization "will be exercising more ," going forward "to ensure that material in future telecasts [will] be more culturally sensitive."
Hudson's personal apology follows a statement issued by an Academy spokesperson earlier in the day that expressed "regrets that any aspect of the Oscar telecast was offensive."

Dear Friends and other concerned Academy members,
Thank you for taking the time to voice your concerns about our 88th Oscar show, which are valid. We appreciate your perspective and take your points very seriously. It certainly was never the Academy’s intent to offend anyone.
We are committed to doing our best to ensure that material in future Oscar telecasts be more culturally sensitive.
It pains us that any aspect of the show was considered offensive, and I apologize for any hurt the skits caused.
Our Awards Committee and Academy leadership will be exercising more oversight to make sure that concerns like yours are fully addressed.
With warm regards,
Dawn Hudson
