I don't know if this is something i should ask on this blog (feel free to delete if its not) but i heard the chainsmokers said something racist, do you know what it was?
This is definitely something I am willing to answer. The video has been taken down. But yesterday at about 10AM KST, the Clamslappers posted a video of an interview in China for Ultra Festival on Twitter. And the host asked whether or not one of the guys (idk their names and I don’t want to know their names) whether he brought his dog. And he made a “joke” implying that dogs aren’t safe in China because of the typical Asian stereotype that all Asians eat/slaughter dogs. The guy didn’t say this specifically, but it was implied through his silence when asked why he didn’t bring his dog and after the host realized what he was implying the Clamslappers and the host laughed together. The caption was also the laughing (with tears) emoji. Later, (I just checked now because I have them blocked), the member (again idk their names) posted an apology saying that it was because he heard dogs get slaughtered in China (you can find it here: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DJdyhAcUMAAr8Fk.jpg:orig), but it was still a racist comment based off of old stereotypes and it frustrates me to an incredible extent. The fact that they make these remarks and laugh about it makes me mad. While he said this is why he didn’t bring his dog, I’m sure he was making a joke about Chinese and Asians in general. If he was truly worried about his dog, he would have looked concerned or sad or made a comment about saving dogs in the interview. Instead he made a cheap “joke” and attempted to cover it up with a campaign to fight against dog slaughter. What makes it even more upsetting is that they are collaborating with BTS, a South Korean boy group. I know a lot of you guys won’t agree with me, but yeah. Also for those fans that are worried about whether or not dislking or not supporting the Clamslappers makes you a bad ARMY, it really doesn’t. Fact of the matter is we love BTS not them. Just because we love BTS doesn’t mean that we have to be fans of those people. I’m going to add this because I don’t think some of you get it. I am Asian, I have lived through ugly Asian stereotypes, remarks, “jokes.” Don’t make comments about the Asian experience and say “well this sterotype applies sometimes.” It doesn’t matter. It was a cheap ugly “joke” and should not be tolerated. - Kylie
Summary: You and Bucky Barnes have been friends for years. You are deeply, completely, in love with the super soldier, but he sees you as nothing more than a little sister. What happens when Bucky starts to date in earnest?
You knew agreeing to pretend to date Steve wasn’t your finest moment, but you were stuck now. It reeked of desperation. Every time someone looked at your intertwined fingers, you felt that they could see right through the farce. It was a cluster fuck of epic proportions.
Steve was sickeningly affectionate, nipping at your neck, pressing kisses to your lips whenever Bucky was in the same room as you. He’d been uncharacteristically distant the last few days, leaving the room with a dark scowl on his face whenever you and Steve got ‘cosy’. Melissa had shown up more frequently, displays of affection turning more and more sexual between the two.
It made you sick, made you feel worthless and ugly every time he growled naughty suggestions in her ear, and her shrill giggle pierced the air.
Walking hand-in-hand with Steve to the weekly movie night, lost in deep thought, Steve stops short. Melissa and Bucky are curled tightly around each other, the former giggling at something he said.
“You up for this doll?” Steve whispers, concern etched on his face.
Squaring your shoulders, you nod once. Gritting your teeth you reply, “Feel like turning it up a notch?”
His eyebrows raise in surprise before he breaks out into a sexy smirk.
If you were a lesser woman you would be a puddle on the floor.
He leans down close to you, breath fanning across your face. “Let’s give em hell, darlin’,” he practically growls.
Pushing aside the jealousy, you plaster on the best smile you can. Wrapping an arm around Steve’s waist, his hand resting casually on your firm backside, you stride into the room together.
Steve squeezes the firm muscle hard as you move in front of Bucky.
You let out a startled squeak before breaking out in a fit of giggles. “Behave, soldier,” you stage whisper.
He grins crookedly, pulling you into his chest. Both hands now rests on your backside. “You know I can’t keep my hands off of ya, darlin’,” he murmurs as he nips at your neck. Peppering kissing along your jaw, he captures your lips in a passionate kiss.
Your hands instinctively fly to his hair, letting out a rather fake moan into his mouth.
He pulls away, chuckling darkly, “Later, baby girl.”
Bucky clears his throat behind you. “Can you two quit it? We’re trying to watch a movie.”
Rage clear on his face, Steve regards his friend cooly. “Sorry, Buck, I can’t get enough of my girl.”
Gritting his teeth, Bucky rises from his seat on the couch. “That’s the thing, Steve. Since when has she been anything to you other than a friend?”
Steve lets go of you abruptly, facing his friend dead on. “We’ve been getting closer since you and the..” he clears his throat, “Since you and Mel started dating, it escalated.” he shrugs nonchalantly.
“We both know she ain’t your type, Steve! What the fuck is going on!” He whirls to face you.
Your stomach drops. Of course he would think you dating a man like Steve would be implausible.
“What the hell is that supposed to mean, jerk?” Steve all but roars, his anger at his best friends lack of filter rising to the surface.
You shrink into yourself, mortified by the disbelief in Bucky’s voice. Ugly, you think, That’s all I am ugly and worthless.
“Ya know what I mean, Steven! (Y/N) is… she’s….” he struggles to find the words to describe you.
A sob makes it past your lips. “Fat?” you whisper.
Bucky’s eyes snap to yours.
“Ugly?” you continue.
Bucky’s mouth slack with horror. “No… I… That’s not what I meant!” he tries to backpedal.
You can hear Melissa sniggering behind you.
“No, James, I get it.” You take a steadying breath. “Just because you wouldn’t look twice at me, Barnes, doesn’t mean other men can’t appreciate me for more than my appearance.” Tears leak down your face.
He had hit the nail on the head.
You weren’t ever going to be good enough for a man like him. Or Steve.
“Krasivaya…” he begins.
You hold up a hand to stop the half assed apology about to come from his mouth. Shutting down all emotion, you look up at him. “I would appreciate it if you would stop calling me that sergeant. I am obviously not beautiful. That much you have made perfectly clear.”
You feel dead inside. Emotionless. An empty void.
Turning to Steve, you grab onto his hand trying to anchor yourself to reality.
“Take me to bed, soldier?” you ask as Bucky bares his teeth at his friend.
“Now you’re talking, baby girl. I’ll meet you there in five. I have a few things to discuss with, Bucky.”
Nodding, you bid everyone goodnight. You haven’t made it five feet beyond the door before the enraged voice of Steve Rogers reaches you.
“What the fuck was that, Barnes?” he roars.
You can hear the collective gasp of everyone in the room. The clean cut, all American soldier swearing?
