beau sia schools rosie

A few weeks back, I posted Beau Sia's powerful, amazing, eloquent open letter to all the rosie o'donnells, his response to Rosie O'Donnell and her now-infamous "ching chong" mockery on The View, asking her to just do the right thing and own up to her mistakes.

A few days ago, Beau reposted the video (prompting everyone to email me about it all over again) with added remarks addressing his critics. The video has sparked quite a discussion in the comments, ranging from "a well done response" to "get over it, chinkboy." A

But wait. Rosie O'Donnell has apparently seen Beau's video and posted the following message on her blog:

"ching chong ching chong

being buried alive in a mine shaft"

"i would never make fun of who u r

for just trying to inform u
of y i shouldn't say
whatever it is i am about to say
about plus sized lesbians"

"so listen 2 me

"learn from this rosie

rosie o'donnell - plus sized lesbian
Nice to know those words did not fall on deaf ears, and good to see O'Donnell going further than just that sad excuse for an apology on The View. Again, big props to Beau.
