Earlier this week, Bill Hader’s rep confirmed that he and Ali Wong were back together after briefly dating and splitting last year. This relationship update was shared right around the time people were calling for a boycott of Ali’s Netflix show, Beef, over star David Choe’s 2014 confession that he sexually assaulted a massage therapist. Coincidence? Or the Hollywood PR machine’s attempt to distract the masses with a fluffy new celebrity romance (while simultaneously promoting the new season of Bill’s Barry). Either way, Bill and Ali are out there, baby, and, yesterday, Page Six published PDA-filled pap photos of the new couple. David Choe who?
Netflix Is Facing A Boycott After Clips Resurface Of “Beef” Star David Choe Admitting To “Rapey Behavior”
Another day another resurfaced clip. At this point, you’d think celebs would have assistants with the sole purpose of scouring the internet for problematic videos/tweets and wiping them from existence before they fall into the hands of someone with actual morals. Artist, writer, and actor David Choe, one of the breakout stars from Netflix’s new hit show Beef, is being dragged after journalist Aura Bogado posted an old clip of David calling himself a “successful rapist” on his podcast DVDASA (stands for Double Vag, Double Anal, Sensitive Artist *eyeroll*). And now Netflix users are calling for a boycott against the show as David Choe tries to scrub the clip from the internet.
