Andrew Yang says he’s heard the criticism, but doesn’t plan to stop telling Asian jokes on the stump

Despite criticism of his one-liners, Yang says he doesn’t plan to change anything about what he’s doing.

Clearly, there’s an audience for this. Yang has surprised many with his popularity among Democratic primary voters, and he’s been praised by some Asian-Americans for his wisecracks. But Yang has also been criticized for advancing harmful stereotypes about Asians by “obtusely reinforcing the model-minority myth.” His jokes have been referred to as “dangerous and exploitative.” He’s been called just plain hacky.

He’s sounding more and more a lot like trump Yes, the good old “it’s perfectly fine for him to be racist cuz he’s a member of the minority he’s stereotyping” excuse Oh shut up and put on a tie. AndrewYang Yang2020 yanggang DragonGod2718 yang2020 I love me some jokes! And this guy wants to be president.

He should double down on the Asian jokes if you ask me. 🥡🥢 Humour never hurts and we need to laugh at ourselves.

Does this mean he will drop out of the campaign and join Shane as a comedic duo stand-up act?

Good for him! If you can’t laugh at yourself and your own community, who can you joke about “Pledges” What was your first draft hatchet piece title: “Andrew Yang, a Brobot created by Elon Musk & Joe Rogan in an Incel/MRA/8Chan rape dungeon, vows to murder (w/ his laser penis) all Asian Americans 1st before he goes after BIPOC & anyone who may have a social grievance.”

Heard but didn’t understand marciasgreen This is so “The Onion”. Thanks for sharing, the photo and headline combo cracked me up. “pledges” too funny. Clown Great! One thing I love is a man who doesn't take the feelings and opinions of others into account. That is so hard to find too!
