Slant eye dooms DJ and Instagram model

Sofia Valentini

An Instagram model and DJ trying to make a name for self has only succeeded in making herself an ass.

Sofia Valentini resorted to making the slant eye in a video in which she asks her 12,000 followers if she could be a member of the kpop girl group Blackpink.

Her stunt outraged both her own fans and fans of Blackpink.

One fan commented “your noodles have a better chance at being a Blackpink member than you.”

Another said “are you on drugs or what? This is so damn racist.”

A third simply said “delete your account.”

24 hours later, Valentini doubled down, posting a sarcastic apology that set off a firestorm.

“I am sorry for not putting extra make up on to look cuter, using fork instead of chopsticks, not putting enough spice and oil on my noodles.

“I apologize for all these and I apologize if I hurt anybody. But I guarantee my noodles were not dry and my boobs are not tiny. I am gonna make a dumpling video next time and it will be fantastic.”

My thoughts on last video ???????

A post shared by Sofia Valentini (@beatsnbeauty) on

AllKPop reports one fan said “We don’t want two racist videos we want zero and the fact you didn’t even apologize for pulling your eyes back which is the MOST OVERDONE racist thing done to Asians,” “This doesn’t even sound like an apology.. it seems super sarcastic and really racist. it’s not even funny at all, you’re just being very rude and offensive. quit stereotyping, maybe try doing something better like saving this earth, yeah?”

  2. RE: Slant eye dooms DJ and Instagram model: Instagram (or some racist turd there) doesn’t consider this harassment, bullying.
