For those of you following the racist Adam Corolla radio show issue where one of his moronic comedians mocked an Asian awards show, saying "ching chong" over 40 times...you may be surprised/pleased/still pissed off (I am all of these things) that Corolla issued an on-air apology to the Asian communtiy. It was clearly a prepared statement, and I'm not sure if it is sincere or not. I'm inclined to think not. As angryasianman states on February 24, it seemed like an attempt to placate the suits at CBS radio, but the damage has already been done.
Here is the text of Corolla's apology:
A quick piece of business to take care of. An apology to the Asian community. We did a bit a few weeks back that offended many people. It was unintended to offend these people. We do a show here that is a little irreverent and sometimes we cross the line and we definitely crossed it this time. And it was not meant to offend. It did. And for that we sincerely apologize to the good people of the Asian community. So we apologize and we thank you for your support.
On his February 24 post, angryasianman has an audio clip of the apology. Yes, it gets tiring, but I am glad people voiced their disapproval. Yet another ridiculously racist skit has appeared courtesy of Dr. Ken on Comedy Central.
