Northwest Asian Weekly

The actress, who uses the stage name “Junie Hoang,” sued the company after it published her birth date on her IMDb profile. Hoang had initially posted a false birth date in order to appear younger, but later wanted her age removed. After making multiple requests for IMDb to delete her age, the website, which has a policy of never removing information and only correcting inaccuracies, responded by posting Hoang’s true birth date, to her dismay.
