Today in horrible people doing horrible things: Day Above Ground released a song called "Asian Girlz," and it's about as bad way worse than you could possibly imagine.
 
Judging by the reactions, "Asian Girlz" is either the most racist thing ever or just the most racist thing you'll see all day.
 
Not only is there plenty of racist stuff to get one's blood boiling, there's also this actual lyric: "17 or 23, it doesn't matter to me!"
 
Levy Tran, the "Asian Girl" in the video, apologized for participating in the clip on Twitter, while the band says they're totally not racist because --wait for it -- "the guy in the bow-tie, our cutie bass player, was born in Indonesia, and he steals the show!"

I sincerely apologize to all who feels that I set Asian women back 50 yrs. I know I lost respect from a lot of ppl. It wasn't my intention

Doesn't seem like a serious song, as Hollywood said. That being said, as an Asian, I do love me some Korean BBQ and boba.

You few people might feel that way, but:

 

pixel-vfl3z5WfW.gif1,226 likes.     pixel-vfl3z5WfW.gif17,781 dislikes.

 

and counting of course...

 

That's quite a difference to say the least.

butt-[expletive] all night?

Alright put this song on SNL and bleep out those parts and people would be laughing. 

Honestly when it's passed off as a serious song it's deemed racist but if it's a parody on SNL it would be deemed  hilarious.

It was meant to be light hearted and fun. Satirical. They are sweet boys and not at all racist. That is all I will say. I'm sorry once again

Borrowed this. I'm not perfect. I make mistakes. All I know is that I'm a good daughter. I'm a good person who is kind to people. I work hard. I keep reminding myself to not listen to the negative comments people say about me. No one will ever really know who I am unless I let them in. Just because I have a few provocative photos does not make me any less of a person. I'm a woman. I am ok with my sexuality. Most of my post have to do with food and fitness. Which is what I'm about. It's taken a long time to build confidence and I'm not giving it up. To those of you who are still struggling to block out the negativity- stay strong. People say the meanest things sometime.

People get offended too easily. The song sucks is why it should be down voted.

People outraged over this need to stfu and find something else to occupy their time with. What makes this song any worse than any other song with racial stereotypes in it?

Also, they need to lay off of Levy, she's awesome.

It's a bunch of dudes in a tiny cage singing about Asian stereotypes. Why would anyone ever take this seriously?

So you just get on to lurk & kinda moderate the forum & what not or what? Cause you sure hardly ever post at all that's for sure. Hope to see you more active once the offseason's over though. Always enjoy most of your posts.
