TikTok User Wants to Cancel James Corden for Making Fun of Asian Food. No, Really.
James Corden is being canceled. No, not for being criminally unfunny. Like, so unfunny, it's as if he spends hours every day honing his craft to be this unfunny. Corden is being canceled because he upset a TikTok user, Kim Saira. That user is Asian. Corden has a segment on his showed called "Spill Your Guts," where guests need to either answer questions or eat disgusting food. That food is occasionally Asian food. Somehow, this ties into the rash of anti-Asian hate running wild throughout America. I don't get it either, but here's the petition.
He's presented foods such as balut, century old eggs, and chicken feet, and which are often regularly eaten by Asian people. During these segments, he's openly called these foods "really disgusting," and "horrific." In the wake of the constant Asian hate crimes that have continuously been occurring, not only is this segment incredibly culturally offensive and insensitive, but it also encourages anti-Asian racism. So many Asian Americans are consistently bullied and mocked for their native foods, and this segment amplifies and encourages it.
Close to 13,000 people are demanding these videos be removed from the internet and the segment be stopped immediately. Here's a clip of a recent segment. No Asian food here, but plenty of animal genitalia.
Spill Your Guts w/ Chrissy Teigen youtu.be
You and I both know what happens next. James Corden has shown that he's a giant pussy and has been cyberbullied into apologizing for dumb things before. While he has not begged for forgiveness yes, ten bucks say he's taking notes from Kimmy Schmidt's recent pathetic apology. Only crossing out anything having to do with black people and replacing it with Asian people. He'll claim he's blinded by his culinary privilege into thinking old eggs and chicken feet are disgusting. His publicist promised him a box of donuts if he can work in a way to blame Donald Trump somehow.
Chrissy Teigen and anyone who had appeared in a video will probably have to apologize as well. They will claim that they had no idea what the show had planned, but that's "no excuse" and they'll promise to "be better" in the future. Me? I'd say I'm going out for Chinese food just to be spiteful. But it's Friday and we culturally appropriate the Italians on Friday.
Now that the petition has hit and is being mocked by the internet, expect Corden to open Monday's show with an apology. 3:1 says he cries.
