3 writers for Netflix’s “Grand Army” quits because of “racist exploitation and abuse”

A Chinese-American screenwriter and two of her colleagues have quit from Netflix’s “Grand Army” series due to racism, reports Resonate. The show took place in Brooklyn, New York, and revolved around five high school students of different ethnicities. Although the show was POC friendly on the front end, the back end not so much, according to Ming Peiffer who took to Twitter to blast the showrunner.

Peiffer said she and two other writers quit the show “due to racist and exploitation and abuse.” She accused the showrunner of being a “Karen” for going to Netflix’s hr to report a black writer for getting a haircut.

“Me and the 3 writers of color who worked on the show quit due to racist exploitation and abuse,” she tweeted. “The show runner and creator went full Karen and called Netflix hr on the Black writer in the room for getting a haircut. Yes you read that correctly. Who wants to interview us?”


Additionally, Ming accused the showrunner of undermining the POC writers.

“Sorry 2, 3 writers including me,” she continued. “Aforementioned tweet is just top of the iceberg. I’m sickened they chose this wording for the tweet and are whoring around the American flag in the trailer as though anything about this project was united.

“It matters who hears you, who says ‘I understand'” this s**t just writes itself.
Really heard & understood us when we told you how exploitative the show was. Tried to underpay the LatinX writer who just won an Emmy meanwhile creator had never worked in tv b4 but the 3 of us had.”

According to Resonate, Ming added that the “show runner wouldn’t listen to the 3 writes of colour, of which I am one, including the Black writer who kept asking to not make her storyline poverty porn.

“When we tried to change the story we were psychologically abused and all quit.”
