I regard this is simply clever wordplay.  Certainly better than "Ruck Fice" or other college-age witticisms.

EvilEgg: I'm not sure I see the racism here.

"It evoked a racial undertone and a negative stereotype," said Cheung

Racial undertone, yes, negative stereotype, no.  What is negative about fried rice being a Chinese dish?


Yeah, that's what I'm wondering about too.  The font they picked bears a stylistic resemblance to Chinese characters, and fried rice is a Chinese/East Asian food.  The racial undertone is clearly present, but I'm not sure what's offensive or negative in there.

Using a stupid font is not "Chinese calligraphy."
