Who is Lindsay Ellis?
Lindsay Ellis is a YouTuber-author who runs a successful YouTube channel that has clocked over a million followers. She creates video essays and “other nondescript content.” “Enjoy these hottest of takes on Disney, Transformers, and Musicals. All hail the Algorithm,” her YT bio reads.
When not tied up in wires in her Los Angeles home studio, Lindsay writes. Her debut sci-fi title ‘Axiom’s End’, was received well. “The blistering fast read isn’t bogged down with unnecessary subplots or language to slow down the action, Eugene Weekly reviewed and added that she has constructed a world that makes the aliens unique without “falling into the sci-fi traps of limiting readers with hard science references, too much space opera-y or clichés.”
Ellis is bisexual and lives in Long Beach with her husband.

‘Raya and The Last Dragon’
Ellis found herself at the center of a troll fest that was triggered by her tweets, in which she had called fantasy series ‘Raya and the Last Dragon’ reduxes of ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’. The reactions were a mixed bag, while some chose to post old tweets of hers, which they claimed were “anti-Asian” in nature.
Lindsay Ellis Twitter Meltdown
Her latest tweets, dated March 26, have been deleted since outraged keyboard warriors slammed her for putting two different pieces of work under the same category. “Also watched Raya and the Last Dragon and I think we need to come up with a name for this genre that is basically Avatar: the Last Airbender reduxes. It’s like half of all YA fantasy published in the last few years anyway,” one of her posts read.
“I can see where if you squint I was implying all Asian-inspired properties are the same, especially if you were already privy to those conversations where I had not seen them. But the basic framework of TLA is becoming popular in fantasy fiction outside of Asian-inspired stuff,” Lindsay tweeted later.
The tweet was possibly in an effort to explain her earlier tweet, which some thought exhibited a lack of “research.”
