I don’t go around looking to get offended, particularly on behalf of other ethnic groups. But I saw some shit today that made me sick, angry and depressed.
Don’t ask me why I thought Adam Sandler’s new flick, “I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry,” would have a few laughs in it. (It doesn’t.) But I wasn’t prepared to see Rob Schneider doing a Japanese caricature that turns back Hollywood’s clock 50 years.
We’re talking overbite and goofy glasses. We’re talking Earl Scheib skin tinting. And, of course, “ring” is pronounced ling.
Who was supposed to laugh at this?
We all know Rob Schneider hasn’t been funny in 15 years. (The Copy Guy sketches burned up all the comedy fuel in his comedy fuel tank.) Schneider must give excellent handjobs, or else why would Adam Sandler keep putting him in movies?
Better question: Are Asian Americans gonna tolerate this bullshit?
Please, somebody, call Mr. Schneider to account... just so I can hear him defend himself by saying he’s got Filipino ancestry and that makes him Asian so he’s entitled to do yellowface shtick.
I want to hear him say that.
Where y’all at, Sansei? What you gon’ do? Put the chopsticks down and RIOT, you meek motherfuckers!
And when you’re finished going all “Hai Karate” on Schneider, drag Mickey Rooney’s carcass out of the old-folks home and apply a little more foot-to-ass therapy. (Or have you forgotten “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”?)
Go ’head... it’ll make you feel good, my brothers and sisters from the Orient. And you know what? Whitey will respect you for it.
You don’t see him trying to pull that blackface crap anymore, do you?
Oh, wait... What the hell is this here? (HT: Racialicious.)
