The band responded with this quote,
We appreciate all the criticism and support. Our song “Asian Girlz” was not written with any malicious, hateful, or hurtful intent. We know it is racy and does push the boundaries further than other songs out there. Understand that we do not promote or support racism or violence.”
But if you’ve read my last two posts, you know the following two things:
–You not being malicious does not mean you deserve a cookie. And you not being maliscious does not preclude you from promoting racism or violence. (“Not racist. But #1 among racists!”)
–If you want to be edgy and push buttons, maybe you can try not sh***ing on a group of people who are already getting sh** on disproportionately. Understand that you saying something that you’ve always kind of felt but that people seem think isn’t socially acceptable to say out loud doesn’t mean that your feelings are wrong. But it does mean that maybe you shouldn’t express those feelings…like a jackass.
