Simu Liu already mastered the art of social media, even before he was cast as the title character in Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Though, his followers will have increased substantially in the wake of the movie’s record-breaking box office success.

Back when he was relatively unknown, starring in sitcom Kim’s Convenience, Liu famously tweeted Marvel, asking when the franchise would introduce an Asian superhero. Then, he inquired about Shang-Chi, and the tweet blew up massively when he was introduced onstage during 2019’s San Diego Comic-Con.

However, after getting asked about it constantly during the Shang-Chi promotional tour, the actor must be exhausted. In a new interview that you can see below, Liu outlined that he really wants people to stop asking him about it.

It’s not as if his social media game isn’t strong enough, with Liu previously channeling Loki‘s Mobius by posting images of himself riding a jet ski in a tribute everyone’s favorite Time Variance Authority analyst; he even used his previous career as a stock photo model to poke fun at those who predicted the worst for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
