Nearing an entire week since Netflix released the teaser trailer to their original adaptation for the Death Note franchise and the whitewashing backlash from the community has not blown over. More fuel was added to the fire when the news spread around that Asian-American actor Edward Zo was refused a part in the series after auditioning as Warner Brothers was, "not looking to see Asian actors for the role of Light Yagami", as Edward Zo stated.

"This would have been an amazing opportunity for an actor of color, for an Asian actor, to take the global stage and break barriers and break stereotypes... (but) they were not looking to see Asian actors for the role of Light Yagami."

In the midst of all of this, A fan created a petition on the website Care2, calling fellow fans to join in on boycotting "Netflix's whitewashed adaptation of Death Note."

"The Death Note manga has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide. It also brought two films, a globally successful anime, and a musical. The story itself is full of Japanese culture, history, and identity - and the Japanese narrative is essential to the plot and storytelling. Death Note shouldn't be cast with all white actors - as it goes against the very soul of the story."
