Re: Rosie O'Donnell - Asian slur
Apparently they were patting themselves on the back about how everyone was talking about the show because of the DeVito Bender, and Rosie - never the brightest bulb on the string - mimicked a Chinese/Asias anchor talking about the episode by making noises like "Ching chong, ching chong..." (I didn't see it, but I've heard accounts from reliable sources).
I wouldn't put it up there with Richards and Gibson, and even protest has been pretty mild even in the Asian-American community from what I can tell, but it was beyond stupid and she needs to own up and apologize.
Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.
