Megan Lochte Is A Horrible Person

August 25, 2012

This is the first story in almost three years for which it was worth coming out of retirement…

Let’s break this down. Megan Lochte is Ryan Lochte’s sister. Four years ago, after returning from the Beijing Olympics, she went on a Maryland talk show and decided it was going to be hilarious to give her thoughts on China and Chinese/Asian people. Observe this worthless human being in the clip below:

What a lovely young lady. Here are some choice quotes:

Host: How long were you there?
Megan: We were there for over a week. China was chinked out.

Wow. Such respect for other cultures. It just warms my heart.

Megan: [describing China] Chinks, everywhere.

Right. At one point the host suggests Megan stop using that word. Megan’s brilliant response? “But it, like, fits them, because they’re like, chinks!”

Ah, I get it. Just like calling you a worthless racist retard is fitting because you’re, like, a worthless racist retard!

Megan goes on to say that Chinese people “drive like ninjas.” The host aptly points out that ninjas are actually Japanese in origin. To which the lovely Megan responds:

They’re whatever we want, they’re Asian.

They’re whatever we want. Wow. Words can’t even begin to describe the depths of her racism.

Jezebel broke this story. More on it here and here.

[Update: the racist douchebag known as Megan Lochte has made statements to Celebuzz saying the video clip was taken out of context. She claims that she was playing a character that was racist and that her racist rant does not reflect her personal views or opinions.

Okay, fine, let’s just for a moment say we believe her. THIS DOESN’T CHANGE MUCH. You can’t go around saying that stuff. Let’s give it the racist litmus test: what would have happened if she did the same thing after visiting Africa? Would she have had the ovaries to go on television and start spouting the N-word, talking about fried chicken and watermelon? Mmmm… Methinks not. So why is it all of a sudden social commentary if you’re doing it with Asian people? Sorry, Megan. You’re still a racist douche.]


Today Show Ridiculousness

September 1, 2008

About a week ago, we had the pleasure of watching Kathie Lee Gifford recounting a joke using a fake Chinese accent.  Classy.

Now we get to see Al Roker and Hoda Kotb join in on the fun and win what Talk Soup’s John McHale calls the gold medal in the “Condescending American” event:

Oh gee, that’s so funny, Al and Hoda… HER last name is “Lee” and Kathie Lee Gifford’s last name is “Lee”!  They MUST be related! Ha! ha! ha!


Jeff Probst Has Ethnic Revelation

September 17, 2006

The Washington Post recently had an interview with Survivor host Jeff Probst, in which he revealed his ethnic ignora– I mean, his newfound appreciation for Asian culture:

Until “Survivor” host Jeff Probst sat in on casting sessions for the CBS reality series’s new edition, in which competitors were picked and put into “tribes” based on their ethnic background, he had not realized that “Asian” includes Japanese, Koreans and Chinese and that they do not necessarily like each other as a matter of ethnic solidarity…

…”When you start talking to a person from Asia, you realize — Wow! They have all different backgrounds!” gushed Probst, who described himself repeatedly as a 44-year-old white guy from Wichita.

… Way to go, big guy. Wanna cookie?

The other day, he told the reporters, he went to his dentist, who is white, and the dentist brought in another dentist, who is Asian. “And I found myself saying to the Asian doctor, ‘Where in Asia is your family from?’ ” The dentist said he was Korean. “The only reason I had the courage to even ask that question or the knowledge to ask that question was I’d just spent 39 days with people from Korea,” Probst said.

Courage? Dude, how about you go read a book… Or look at a freaking map?!
