Joey King Shuts Down Rumors She Auditioned For Katara For Live Action 'Avatar: The Last Airbender'

Joey King is putting rumors to rest!

The 21-year-old The Kissing Booth actress took to Twitter to shut down the rumors that she was auditioning for the character Katara in the live action Avatar series for Netflix.

“I have 0 involvement in this project and didn’t know this project even existed until I logged onto twitter today and my timeline was floooded with these rumors. I do not believe a white woman should play a character of color. Not me or any white woman for that matter,” Joey wrote on her account.

Earlier that day, it was also revealed that the creators of the upcoming Avatar: The Last Airbender Netflix series, Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, have left the project.

“Many of you have been asking me for updates about the ‘Avatar’ live-action Netflix series,” Michael shared on Instagram. “I can finally tell you that I am no longer involved with the project. In June of this year, after two years of development work, Bryan Konietzko and I made the difficult decision to leave the production.”
