Taking it to Twitter

We have been told that Frank Marshall, one of the producers of The Last Airbender, has an account on Twitter. We've also been told that many of our supporters have been sending him harassing messages.

While we understand that this is a rare opportunity to communicate more directly with the producers, rude behavior reflects badly on all of us. It's far better for our movement if we are polite and precise with our words, and present a unified front.

If you have a Twitter account and want to help, you can use this message:

@LeDoctor I want Airbender to be successful, and so I'm asking you to address the public's concerns with its racially insensitive casting.

If you want to follow our own updates on Twitter and discuss the casting controversy with us in that format, you can do so here.
