sung kang gets tmz'd

I wasn't going to post this because, well, it's goaddamn TMZ. But if this is what passes for celebrity journalism, and a lot of people are going to see this, I guess I should say something. Sung Kang and TMZ. Click at your own risk: Ask the Asian Guy -- Featuring 'Fast & Furious' Guy. [EDIT: The link has been mysteriously taken down. Check below to see the video.]

Here's the video, uploaded to YouTube. These idiots have no idea what to do with Sung Kang, "the Asian guy from the Fast and Furious movies." So of course, they regress into the usual easy Asian stereotypes, while simultaneously mock-chastising themselves for going there... but still going there anyway because they can't think of anything else. That is some coward-ass racism.

Not that I expect much from this brilliant editorial staff, but man, it really must have been a slow day at the TMZ office. But I guess they're on a mission -- America's not quite dumb enough yet, so there's still work to be done.

UPDATE: Sung Kang blogs about his recent appearance (more like ambush) on TMZ, and explains that the TMZ representative who rolled up on him with the camera was actually an Asian guy: You got me…ha ha ha! No speak Engrish. Ching chong ching chong rama rama ding dong.

Sneaky motherf@#ker. Sung basically gets at the heart of the matter -- the TMZ editors encountered a guy who doesn't really match up with the stereotypes they hold about Asians, so they went the easiest route and made up their own.
