The social change advocacy organization change.org is circulating a petition to boycott Syfy Movies with a View at Brooklyn Bridge Park because of the screening of Breakfast at Tiffany’s scheduled for Thursday, August 11. As we previously noted, the 1961 Blake Edwards movie, starring Audrey Hepburn, is controversial because of Mickey Rooney’s “yellowface” portrayal of Mr. Yunioshi, a Japanese-American character.
