she who must not be named

I originally heard about this last week but I just couldn't bring myself to give Paris Hilton any more attention that she deserves, which is none. From now on, I shall refer to her as She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. According to this press release, GLAAD is calling on the hotel heiress to explain and apologize to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) and African American communities for her use of anti-gay and racial slurs in a video that began circulating on the internet last month: GLAAD Calls On Paris Hilton to Explain, Apologize for Anti-Gay, Racial Slurs In Video. This press release, however, makes no mention of the fact that she has some apologizing to do to the Asian American community as well. Indeed, I have seen the video in question, and She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named nonchalantly refers to some Asian guy talking to her boyfriend as "the Chink." Like it's no big deal. I did a quick search and couldn't find the video anymore, but believe me, you don't need to see it. Sadly, that's five minutes I will never get back. Is anyone really surprised at this behavior? No. Absolutley no one. But it needs to be said: That's racist!
