The 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.
