Mortal Kombat Backfire! Feminist Complains Chun Li Isn’t In New Mortal Kombat Movie & Gets DESTROYED

TheQuartering [2/19/2021]

The Mortal Kombat movie looks like it might be decent, but this take was anything but…

According to the MarySue:

Apparently, there are a lot of people who think Chun-Li is from Mortal Kombat, or just a Nicki Minaj song. Well, no. Chun-Li, the lady with thighs from heaven and hell, is from Street Fighter. Another game entirely.

I initially wanted to just go full “lol wtf this is low key racist and just really bad trolling if that’s the intent” with this piece, but I decided that instead, I’m going to re-introduce you to some of the iconic ladies of fighting games.

Let’s start with the GOAT: Chun-Li. Notable for being the first playable female fighter of any fighting game franchise to gain mainstream love and attention. She broke the glass ceiling with her legs. Chun-Li made her first appearance in Street Fighter II: The World Warrior in 1991 and has been an iconic part of the franchise ever since. A martial arts expert who is seeking revenge for her father (as you do),

Ming-Na played her in a film once and honestly, the film isn’t great, but we love to see Ming-Na in anything.
