ROCK OF ASIAN: Jimmy Wong’s Response to Alexandra Wallace Is Even Catchier Than Rebecca Black’s “Friday”
There will, heaven willing, be a million and one video responses to Alexandra Wallace’s now-infamous rant about Asians in the library. The racism, ignorance, and overall stupidity of the video have been–due to the rapidfire responses of whip-smart netizens–in many ways reclaimed or reappropriated. Also, like it or not, “Ching chong ling long ting tong” has (rather ironically) been cemented in the Asian American vernacular (and we have the t-shirts to prove it).
But I must say that the best counterattack of Ms. Wallace’s awfulness isn’t an attack at all. It’s a love song.
I literally have not stopped singing this chorus for over 24 hours, and I have to admit I kinda don’t feel so angry anymore. All I wanna do is hug on Jimmy Wong.
Jimmy Wong*, FTW. ForThefuckingWin.
*Did you know: This is AMAZIAN Freddie Wong‘s bro? Coolest, funniest, awesomest, rockingest family EVAR.
Thanks, everybody (lots of you love this video)!

She’s smart. She’s brash. She’s funny.
Her first name is adorable, her last succinct and easy to pronounce.
Her nose freckles are cuter than Diana’s nose freckles.
She has a blog too, but she never complains about it–and she isn’t getting a furrowed brow and grey hair like we are.
AND SHE LOOKS…
