Lena Waithe showed her support for rom-com “Crazy Rich Asians” by buying out an entire theater.

The actress, producer and writer attended the premiere and hyped the film, which boasts an all Asian and Asian American cast, on Twitter.

“Go see this film this weekend! It’s just as important as #BlackPanther & #WrinkleInTime. Let’s do it for the culture. *and if you got an Asian tattoo you should buy a ticket just out of respect. I’m looking at you Wu Tang Clan!!!” Waithe tweeted.

Jon M. Chu, the film’s director, noticed the tweet and gave Waithe a shoutout for her support. She responded that she and her team bought out a theater for a screening of the film.

“Crazy Rich Asians” is currently in theaters.
