On February 10, a Twitter user put 4 pictures together, consisting of Japanese singer JOJI, Indonesian rapper Rich Brian, the director of Parasite (2019) Bong Joon-ho and Stranger Things' Finn Wolfhard.


The next day, Rich Brian retweeted it, saying:



"4 Asian icons 😍😍😍😍"

To which Finn responded with:

"What is happening"



How did fans react?


Basically, this led to several fans googling Finn's ethnicity, wondering if he was indeed Asian. For those who don't know, Finn is actually Canadian, from a French, German and Jewish descent.

Anyway, fans are finding it hilarious that Finn was accidentally mistaken as Asian.


Check out their tweets below:



"Finn is Asian? WHAT IS HAPPENING?!? 🤣🤣🤣"

"This just in: Finn Wolfhard comes out as Asian!"

"You’re now officially Asian. No buts. It is what it is."


It is currently unknown whether or not Rich Brian had accidentally mistaken Finn's ethnicity, or if it was an intentional joke as Rich Brian replied to Finn's confused comment with: "keep representing ❤️🙏🏻"


In other news, Finn has finally finished filming his short film Night Shifts, which he also wrote and directed. Read more about it here.


Stranger Things season 4 has begun filming. Finn was seen catching a flight on February 11, which fans speculate will take him to the filming location of Stranger Things season 4.
