….I wasn’t gonna say anything but. This is beyond ridiculous.
So there’s a difference between making fun of an accent of a single person who 1) often appears on shows where her accent is a part of her appeal, in bits where she’s always a part of the joke, 2) is not being made fun of as a representative of her whole race, 3) is not seen as incompetent or stupid because of her accent, and 4) is white and in a country where there is no history of whites being seen as racially inferior (pretty much everywhere).
There’s a difference between that and growing up being made fun of for your accent and your race and your culture, in a country where you’re never in on the joke because you are the joke, where having an accent is synonymous with being inferior, stupid, and backwards, where it can keep you from being taken seriously or getting a job, where it can make you feel ashamed of your parents.
Amber is Asian American, she would know how that feels as much as any of us. And if you knew how that felt you would never be able to compare it to the Christina thing.
Sure, it’s possible that Korean prejudice against foreigners could be a factor in why Christina and her accent are funny there, but Amber herself is a foreigner, often made fun of for her Korean, so if anything it’s actually less sketchy coming from her.
