Sorry, thought it was pretty tastefully done. Yeah was her performance in the style of a less than accurate representation of two cultures? Yes. But she wasn't adopting some obscure accent or going out of her way to poke fun.

If people have an issue with this performance I'd like to direct you to every american made film involving Asian tropes. Or even point you towards one of a dozen ways cultures are being exploited in the media.
Those should be called out more as well; imho.

My personal fave is: You're the real racist for bringing it up!!
This is just known as "the birdman defense" around here.

UNPOPULAR OPINION. I don't see what the big deal is about "dressing in blackface". This is something that has been DEEMED bad by society but for no good reason. When you really dissect it, if there's no malicious intent, what is wrong with dressing up as a black person? Dave Chappelle can dress as "whiteface" and no one bats an eye. Our society is way over-sensitive now.

Thousands of brilliant writers and sociologists and studies reduced to "tumblr-ites" .... good.

I don't know what to think. I've been on this website for a couple years and 2013 more than any other year, has had "_____ did something offensive" posts. I don't know what that means though.
Means maybe we're making some progress ...
