Alison Brie Says She Regrets Voicing ‘Diane Nguyen’ On ‘BoJack Horseman’

American actress Alison Brie, who is best known for representing ‘Annie Edison’ in TV series ‘Community’ stated she feels sorry for voicing a Vietnamese-American character, ‘Diane Nguyen’ in the animated series ‘BoJack Horseman‘.

The Golden Globe Award-nominated actress wrote on her verified Instagram page as follows and expressed her regret:

“In hindsight, I wish that I didn’t voice the character of Diane Nguyen. I now understand that people of color, should always voice people of color.”

The 37-year-old actress added:

“We missed a great opportunity to represent the Vietnamese-American community accurately and respectfully, and for that I am truly sorry. I applaud all those who stepped away from their voiceover roles in recent days. I have learned a lot from them.”

After that, ‘BoJack Horseman’ creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg responded to Alison Brie’s announcement as follows:

“This is something I am happy to talk about! We should have hired a Vietnamese writer, and a Vietnamese actress to play Diane – or if not that, changed the character to match who we did hire.”
