Lamest Bitchfight Ever: Rihanna Tweets Offensive Pic At Chris Brown’s GF

March 14th, 2012 | 9 comments | Posted by Jen

Earlier this month, Rihanna tweeted a pic of a bag of rice cakes dressed in wayfarers and gold hoops accompanied by the caption “Ima make u my bitch,” which everyone interpreted as her throwing shade at Karrueche Tran, Chris Brown’s current girlfriend, who is of Vietnamese and African American descent.

Some people have asked if this is racist. YES. Yes it is. I think of Rihanna’s legion of young fans who are Asian, and I’m sad for them. I’m sad, too, that Rihanna’s instigating a bitchfight with another woman over a man-child who, um, beat her in the face.

I’m also sad that Rihanna’s eating janky-ass Safeway-brand rice cakes when she should be all over Lundberg organics, and yes, I do think that’s a metaphor for her shitty life choices.

DISGWITTER OF THE WEAK! The Yao Ming “Made In China” Meme

December 17th, 2010 | 6 comments | Posted by Jen

Yao Ming has suffered yet another foot injury that could sideline him for the rest of the season and has some people wondering if this doesn’t signal the end of his NBA career.

So what do you do when the career of one of the NBA’s good guys is in jeopardy?  Cue the Yao Ming-Made In China jokes!

Is this meme “racist or stereotypical”?  Good question, “Joey”!

And the answer is: No! It’s racist and stereotypical!  Stay classy, Tweeps.

DISGWITTER OF THE WEAK! Where Is #TeamAsianGirls?

April 19th, 2010 | 5 comments | Posted by Jen

Poking around Twitter last night, a few Trending Topics caught my eye.

Of course, my first reaction was, “WTF? Where’s #TeamAsianGirls?” And I felt a little sad, you know? Like that anxious, sweaty, picked-last-in-gym-class kinda sad?

But sometimes, not being a team player can be a good thing.

Like a relieved, wiping sweat off my brow, oh-right-the-internet-is-overrun-by-racists-and-pervs-how-could-I-forget kinda good thing.

To see what I mean, click here to see the results for #TeamBlackGirls. Here for #TeamSpanishGirls. Here for #TeamMixedGirls. Here for #TeamWhiteGirls. But be warned: racism, misogyny, and bad spelling abound.

DISGWITTER OF THE WEAK! “GO BACK TO Saigon, South Vietnam” Joseph Cao

November 10th, 2009 | 5 comments | Posted by Jen

This Tweet, from @RightBloggerPat, speaks for itself (and by self we mean its pedestrian, unoriginal, 3rd grade, racist core):

The old “go back to where you came from” stinger!

Yawn.
