Yeah, nah.

The Shang-Chi star was not having it. On 7th September, Simu Liu posted on Twitter a stock photo that he modelled for in the earlier part of his career. He captioned it “Me laughing at people who thought we’d (Shang-Chi) flop”. The company that he modelled for decided to respond to his tweet. Liu’s response was probably not what they were hoping for.

Last month, Liu shared on Twitter that for at least one of the pictures going around, he was only paid $120. 

“Got paid 120 bucks and signed away all my rights to them because I was in credit card debt. Now they are everywhere,” he wrote in the tweet.

Liu has always been known to have a strong social media presence and a witty sense of humour. Since fans couldn’t get enough of his iStock images, he turned it into a meme in response to critics suggesting that Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings would do poorly at the box office. It actually smashed records over Labour Day weekend, the movie grossed over $90 million over a period of four days.
