Rosie O’Donnell Apologizes for Asian Joke on the View!
The infamous Asian Joke which ran during a segment of the December 5 taping of the show where Rosie O’Donnell’s attempt at humor by speaking in mock Chinese was found to be very appalling and Anti-Chinaman-Semitic. Rosie addressed the beginning of today’s show with an apology noting how… he was “sorry” and didn’t know she was being offensive until she asked fellow employee…Let’s call her Judy, who’s Asian and works in the hair and makeup department, if the joke was offensive to her? Judy’s Reply was, ‘Well, kinda. When I was a kid people did tease me by saying ching-chong.”
Later Judy was said to accept Rosie’ s apology of 3 pints of Guinness after work.
Reportedly Michael Richards has stood by Rosie’s side by commenting that to him “Their All A Bunch of Niggers”.
