Shang-Chi’s Simu Liu: Pedophilia Is ‘No Different Than Being Gay’

Author: Trudy Ring

Simu Liu, star of the superhero film Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, once made comments on Reddit sympathizing with pedophiles and likening them to gay people according to a series of screenshots.

The Reddit account that made the comments and that has been linked to Liu has been deleted, but social media users have been sharing images of the comment in question.

Users connected the account NippedInTheBud to Liu through multiple touch points. In addition to the statements about pedophilia, the account posted Liu’s headshot to another Subreddit to ask for feedback. In another, the account started an Ask Me Anything thread by identifying its owner as Liu.

In 2015, he wrote that he’d recently played a pedophile and that the experience had made him “much more sympathetic to anyone who is born with those urges.”

“From a biological standpoint it’s no different than being gay — a small mutation in the genome that determines our sexual preferences,” he continued. He allowed that “taking advantage of minors is wrong. Disgusting and vile, even.” But he said the medical treatment for pedophilia is going about it the wrong way, much like conversion therapy for LGBTQ+ people.

He did not say what kind of therapy he would recommend but, apparently addressing someone who is attracted to children, he advised “using throwaways” and avoiding child pornography. “It may seem innocent but even watching it is propogating [sic] the entire industry which I’m sure you agree is disgusting,” he wrote.
