I'm sorry if you misunderstood.

I hope that's clear enough.

while i agree that comments about Rosie's looks and weight are totally irrelevant to this thread and, yes, quite sexist since you're absolutely right, insults to a woman's appearance are seeing as having currency in some circles, i still have no problems calling Rush Limbaugh a fat drug addict when he mocks people with Parkinson's Disease.

Well you said "comments such as the one made above" and mine was the one made above-so I don't think my confusion was all that odd. And honestly given the way things are sometimes in FYM I do feel confused. Anyway thanks for the clarification.

And the other comment about her being ugly was uncalled for and completely irrelevant to the topic as well.



By ERIN CARLSON, Associated Press Writer Thu Dec 14

Rosie O'Donnell says she's sorry for mocking spoken Chinese on "The View," but an association that represents journalists from diverse ethnic and racial backgrounds, including Chinese American, says it wasn't enough.

In a Dec. 5 segment, O'Donnell joked about how Danny DeVito's recent — and seemingly drunken — appearance on the ABC daytime talk show had become international news.

"You know, you can imagine in China it's like `ching chong, ching chong chong, Danny DeVito, ching chong chong chong, drunk, "The View," ching chong,'" the 44-year-old comedian said.

On Thursday's show, she told the audience: "To say ching chong to someone is very offensive, and some Asian people have told me it's as bad as the n-word. Which I was like, `Really? I didn't know that.'"

Karen Lincoln Michel, president-elect of Unity: Journalists of Color Inc., said O'Donnell's remarks "really didn't sound like an apology to me."

Lincoln Michel said Unity was waiting for Barbara Walters, who created the show, to respond to a letter asking her to publicly acknowledge that O'Donnell's remarks were "patently offensive."

"I think by allowing Rosie O'Donnell's cheap jabs at Chinese Americans to go unchecked, then the network is essentially condoning racial and ethnic slurs," Lincoln Michel told the AP in a phone interview.

Unity said it represents more than 10,000 journalists nationwide.

"You know it was never (my) intent to mock," O'Donnell said on Thursday's show, "and I'm sorry for those people who felt hurt or were teased on the playground."

"But I'm also gonna give you a fair warning that there's a good chance I'll do something like that again, probably in the next week — not on purpose. Only 'cause it's how my brain works."

O'Donnell characterized her accent as "Chinese, Asian, pseudo-Japanese, sounded a little Yiddish ..."

How about this Fucking Bovine!!!!

A bovine includes both male and females of the bovine family. Is that more PC for you?

You know what I hate her. Not because she is a female. Because she's Rosie O'Donnell. If you take my saying "cow" as sexist I didn't mean it that way. Next time I will bash someone as an equal opportunist. Sorry.

It's sad when an apology "isn't enough" over some stupid comments.

Please, that was no racist tirade! Lighten up already. When Rosie does her stand up on HBO, she can be quite funny! Rosie is no racist and I didn't hear her use any chinese slurs during this goofy segment on The View.

This is seriously getting absolutely ludicrous.

Yes, she shouldn't have said what she did.
Yes, some are inevitably slighted.

She apologized. It's "not enough"? What the fuck are people expecting, the god damned Taj Mahal?

I'm getting awfully sick of people who say "it's not enough" at a stupid comment like this. This wasn't racist. Bigoted, yes. Stupid, yes. But I can walk down a city street and hear much worse within a 5-block radius of my house, for god's sakes.

"It's not enough"...BULLSHIT.

I'm not sticking up for Rosie O'Donnell (god forbid), but I think we're getting to the point that people get giddy when someone in the public eye says something that might be offensive to somebody, somewhere. The apology is never "enough". But it seems a cool half-mil is always "enough".

We're starting to see moral outrage for the sake of being able to milk cash out of people.

Next time someone calls an Irishman a drunkard, or a Canadian a hoser maybe I should sue for millions...oh wait a sec, I almost forgot - I'm a white Protestant. I'm not allowed to get offended when someone makes fun of my ethnicity. Oops!

^Yes and all that-but on the other hand she jumps all over Kelly Ripa and calls her a homophobe for what she said. But she apparently doesn't have the same level of standards for her own behavior, methinks perhaps..

What, an apology isn't "enough"? What's she supposed to do, erect a monument to the Chinese? I don't want to defend her, God forbid, but I think it's stupid that they don't want to accept her apology. I'm sure it's heartfelt.
