 Audrey Magazine: 

Thought it was bad that some people believe all Asian women have the same type of hair? Well, it gets worse. Much worse.

In this day and age, there are still some people who can’t tell Asians apart because they’re under the impression that all Asians look the same. Maybe they don’t get enough exposure to Asian folks. Maybe the only Asians they can identify are the ones on TV. Whatever the reason may be, there’s no longer room for these kinds of mistakes. Even Steven Yeun had to comedically remind the masses of this ignorance.

On Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Steven Yeun announced to the audience that he’s on a mission to prove that Asians are not clones of each other. He broke it down for the greater public by loudly stating, “WE DON’T LOOK ALIKE.”

Yeun then told O’Brien how countless people have said they get confused for the Walking Dead star. “People will come up and like [say], ‘I get mistaken for you all the time,’” Yeun recounts. “And I’m like, ‘You’re 55 years old! Or you’re a 12-year-old girl. What are you talking about?’”

What’s even better is how Yeun tries to reverse the confusion to show that “everyone looks alike” with a few examples of ethnic celebrity look-alikes. He finds an Asian Brad Pitt, a Black Matt Damon and an Asian Elijah Woods.
