The official UK Twitter account (@BeastsMovieUK) for 'Fantastic Beasts' is receiving backlash for posting a wrong photo of Soo Hyun (Claudia Kim).

On November 14, 'Fantastic Beasts' shared photos from the premiere event. The caption names Claudia Kim, however, the photo shows Japanese actress Mirei Kiritani




Both Claudia Kim and Mireri Kitani wore long, black dresses to the event, but many are finding the mistake rude and racist. 




A Twitter user called out 'Fantastic Beasts' and stated, "You considered two people the same just because they are Asian women. This is RACISM. You are an official account of UK. You shouldn't act like this. Have some RESPECT these two."

The tweet gained over 2.3K retweets as of this writing. 


Meanwhile, the 'Fantastic Beasts' UK Twitter account deleted the tweet and posted again with the correct photo of Claudia Kim.
