It’s almost a shame that So You Can Think You Can Dance alum Lauren Gottlieb, who once revealed in a package on the show that she frequently took auditions as an Asian alter-ego named Misha Chan, has finally learned the wise lesson not to read about herself online.
Okay, perhaps we had something to do with that.
Now she’ll probably never know that we read the Zap2It article and actually felt a shade of empathy for the girl. Gottlieb spoke of how the 2007 show package was produced in a way that obliterated the context: editing and producing made her cute little “Misha” character come across a way that made her (and Asian American viewers) feel icky. And it made her sad to read that we almond-eyes found her alter-ego to be pretty damn douchey.
We get that. We understand that. See, guys? We’re not so harsh, after all!
Still, though… WHAT THE FUCK KINDA NAME IS MISHA CHAN? FO REALZ???
