We get the process, but Cliff Booth is a fictional character, Bruce Lee isn't. The question is, is it fair to depict late actors like Bruce Lee in a negative way given what The Rock, Jason Statham and Vin Diesel demand on set to protect their brand today?
Based on a recent article here on nofilmschool and wall street journal, titled ‘Fast & Furious’ Stars’ Complicated Demand—I Never Want to Lose a Fight

Just thinking about how many people are complaining that the bad depiction of Bruce Lee on Once Upon a Time in Hollywood are unfounded, yet here are these three stars who are still alive protecting their brand...smh
