"Tonight I want to ask you to join me in a prayer for peace, that these attacks between the Chinas do not make our situation worse."Perhaps Machado should get together with foreign policy expert Sarah Palin to clear up a few misconceptions about the geopolitical realities on the Korean peninsula. Not surprisingly, her gaffe apparently sparked a Twitter firestorm, and she has since closed her account.
But wait! It doesn't end there. The idiot parade continued on when Mexican singer and actress Paulina Rubio (honestly, I had to look up who she is), came to Machado's defense -- also on Twitter -- offering these brilliant words of wisdom:
"Leave Alicia alone. All Japanese people look the same and China is a very big country."Wait, what? How the hell did Japan get involved in all this? Wow. Either she doesn't a give a damn, or really doesn't know the difference. Korea, South Japan, North China -- it's all the same, right? I guess all Asians do look alike. Please people, think before you tweet.
