Soooo... you may have heard of that piece of shit segment on Fox News' O'Reilly Factor, in which unfunny asshole Jesse Watters sauntered into New York City's Chinatown to do "man-on-the-street" interviews and mock the shit out of Asians using every stereotype he could summon in his limited imagination. It's pretty infuriating.
That's why this Daily Show segment, in which correspondent Ronny Chieng rips the absolute shit out of Jesse Watters, is so incredibly satisfying to watch. Chieng tells Watters to "go fuck yourself," and advises him that if he's going to be racist, "at least get your stereotypes right, you ignorant sack of shit."
Chieng then goes to Chinatown himself to have actual conversations with local Asian Americans and seek out their actual opinions and political views on the elections. Instead of, you know, approaching every Asian as a slant-eyed punching bag for tired-ass cheap shot Karate Kid jokes.
You have to admit, that felt damn good.
Meanwhile, the segment has drawn fire from every corner of Asian America, from politicians to social justice organizations to everyday folks speaking out to demand Watters, The O'Reilly Factor and Fox News to answer for their irresponsible content. Slim chance of that happening, but we must get angry all the same.
