Beware the eatery that advertises with Sexy Asian Santas

Suzy Wong's House of Yum encourages you to "enjoy Chinese on Christmas day!"

Got this passed along to from a sharp-eyed reader in Nashville, who spotted this totally tasteful newspaper ad for Suzy Wong's House of Yum, encouraging folks to "enjoy Chinese on Christmas day!" In case it isn't immediately obvious, or you were perhaps distracted by the Sexy Asian Santas, that's a restaurant.

1. Way to go, hyper-sexualizing Asian women as usual. And dragging Christmas into it too.

2. I guess I'm not surprised there is a restaurant called Suzy Wong's House of Yum -- a reference to Hollywood's favorite Asian "hooker with a heart of gold." Pineapple Red Curry Shrimp and Asian Wonton Nachos always taste better when you're invoking tired Orientalist stereotypes. The restaurant's website boasts "a brothel of epicurean delights." With the marketing to match, I guess.

2. Where the hell do you get an image like that anyway? Google, of course. Just do an image search for "sexy asian santa." It's apparently a thing. (Actually, don't do the search. Just take my word for it.)

(Thanks, Jasmine.)
