Woke film critic Li Lai, the founder and editor-in-chief at at Mediaversity Reviews and the Senior Director of Content at Common Sense Media, was utterly roasted after she claimed Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer film glossed over the “victims of the atrocities.”

Cillian Murphy is J. Robert Oppenheimer in OPPENHEIMER, written, produced, and directed by Christopher Nolan.

Lai, whose Twitter biography declares she grades TV and films on diversity, posted to Twitter, “People seem to love Oppenheimer but I’ll just say it: I was uncomfy watching yet another movie about tortured white male genius when the victims of the atrocities glossed over by the script—Japanese people, interned Japanese Americans, and Native Americans—had no voice.”

Lai would later respond to another user writing, “I did think the overall sense of purposeful unease in the film was cool, but I think my uncomfiness had more to do with the fact the project exists more than how the topic was handled within the film, if that makes sense. (plus the lines about Native Americans were oof).”

The replies did not hold back as Lai was absolutely destroyed for her inane opinion.

GeorgefromNY1 tweeted, “Japanese people…? Hmm. I wonder what could have been happening in the years 1941-45 between the USA and Japan that could give that context. Quite the puzzle.”

White Ops novelist Declan Finn tweeted, “Sorry Li Lai. I think your inane commentary just bombed.”

Psychologist Chris Ferguson wrote, “Japan did start the war, and refuse to surrender when the writing was on the wall (and the US dropped leaflets warning them about the bomb and to leave the targeted cities).”

He added, “Many Native Americans proudly fought in WWII for the US. They’re not your perpetual victims.”

007Vintage torched Lai tweeting, “It never crossed my mind that a movie titled Oppenheimer, focused on the life and work of the eponymous scientist, wasn’t a documentary covering all of the elements of WWII.”

JCAP201 tweeted in response, “You need to crack a history book and look up what Japan was doing prior to that bomb dropping. Honestly, that bomb was the best thing that could of ever happened to Japan.”

Tim Gill mocked, “‘I went to see Oppenheimer. A movie about a man named Oppenheimer, as the title suggests, but I would have preferred if it was a documentary about Native Americans.'”
