SF Gate: Bravo Removes Racist Anti-Japanese Slur from New Show

posted by asamnews


Princesses:Long IslandThe Bravo Network has removed a racist anti-Japanese slur from a new show following a protest from an Asian American member of the US Civil Rights Commission, reports SF Gate.

Commissioner Michael Yaki heard the slur j*p during a commercial used to promote the new show, “Princesses: Long Island.”

The term was meant as an acronym to refer to a spoiled Jewish women as a Jewish American princess.  But Yaki didn’t see it that way.

“This promo ran again and again and I got madder and madder and said, “This is not right,,” Yaki said.

Yaki sent a letter to Bravo  and within days, Bravo executives responded by saying the term would be removed from both the promo and the show.

    Re: Okay Then comment on Bravo use of Japanese Racial Slur: There are other definitions of the "N" word too, but that word has become pretty much obsolete from the English Language. Same should happen to the "J" word
