#CancelColbert: Suey Park vs Stephen Colbert, Colbert Wins!

4 years ago65 views

The Twittersphere imploded last week after the Colbert Show tweeted: 'I am willing to show #Asian community I care by introducing the Ching-Chong Ding-Dong Foundation for Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever.'

Twitter activist Suey Park, 23, who claims she has a special talent for putting hashtags in front of words, was outraged by the tweet and unleashed a hailstorm of #cancelcolbert tweets. "I think I've definitely figured out the trick to make hashtags trend," Park said. "I know what drives corporations and Twitter kind of crazy."

Her collection of hashtag trends include #NotYourAsianSidekick, #BlackPowerYellowPeril, #HowIMetYorkRacism and #SaturdayNightLies.

Unfortunately for Park, who calls herself a freelance writer, she seems to be having a tough time understanding what satire is. Turns out that the tweet was a part of a joke that aired the night before about racist Dan Snyder and the Redskins and Colbert didn't tweet it...doh!

Rather than admit she was wrong, Park went all in on the racism charge and said she had a problem with the whole joke and then she herself imploded in a disastrous HuffPo Live interview.

The Asian American community got the joke, but then Park turned super feminist. While Park remains clueless, Dan Snyder is still racist and Native Americans probably have some hashtags of their own.
