Florida Company: "One Neanderthal-made incredibly racist commercial."

The Law Firm: "That's not ours. Our firm did not approve the latest advertising commercial."

Florida Company: "One commercial script, submitted by The Law Firm."

The Law Firm: "They refused to honor a cease-and-desist letter."

Florida Company: "We have never had any involvement with McCutcheon & Hamner's Youtube Account."

The Law Firm: You Tube Channel has been hacked.  This sort of thing ain't our bag, baby.

Etc.

For his part, DeBerry - who plays "Mr. Wong Fong Su" in the commercial - has defended the ad on Twitter, where he has argued, "I'm not a racist, I'm a member of the NAACP who has black relatives." In his own statement to Above The Law, DeBerry denies his company tampered with the firm's YouTube page, saying, "We run a production company that creates 'Cheesy B-Rate Commercials.' We have never had any involvement with McCutcheon & Hamner, P.C's Youtube Account."

You've got to be kidding me.  At no point would anyone intelligent consider that ad as filmed a good idea.  The ad agency, the law firm, and anyone else involved needs a serious kick in the ass.

Christ, Mickey Rooney was rightfully called out for his racist portrayal of I.Y. Yunioshi in 1961.  52 years ago!

THIS.

How was that video in any way funny... except to a raging, horribly racist person?

I thought you had to be somewhat smart to be a lawyer, but if they find this sort of thing "entertaining" I suspect I can dig up a pet rock and put it through law school.
 
2013-12-02 10:02:19 PM
Wow, usually these sorts of stories are overblown garbage, but THAT was one seriously racist commercial.  Amazing work, guys, I'd love to see more of your work
 
2013-12-02 10:02:54 PM
Look, I have BLACK RELATIVES. Therefore my abjectly ignorant potrayal of Chinese persons cannot be inappropriate.

The firm that made it thinks it's YOUR problem if you are offended.

And they have black relatives, which makes it all A-OK!

You can understand their slant if you squint just right. At the end of the day, it's all yellow journalism anyway.

Anyway, they did the rice thing and the ad was chopped.

fark, even if the lawyers ran with it, who in the ad agency thought it was a good idea?  What ad agency is this?
 
2013-12-02 10:05:32 PM
McCutcheon & Hamner, P.C.

Evidently not.

2013-12-02 10:07:52 PM
I'm slightly disappointed they didn't double down with a new ad based on "Birth of a Nation."
 
2013-12-02 10:08:38 PM
Yea right, I'm the only guy that laughed at that commercial?  Everything about it was funny, get over yourselves.

2013-12-02 10:14:15 PM
Here's my bet:

1) The law firm really, truly didn't ask for this or anything like it.

2) The law firm was super goddamn careless in who they were dealing with and probably has some  (legally enforceable?) responsibility for this all the same.

3) The guy at the heart of this (Mr. "Wong Fong Su" himself) is the kind of guy who mixes one part pure unadulterated cracker-barrel racism with 20 parts weapons-grade stupid, such that he genuinely believes that he's not racist,  you're the racist for not getting it, etc. The key here is the whole "I'm a member of the NAACP, I love 'The Ethnics,' I have black relatives, ergo SUPER NOT RACIST YOU GUYS" schtick.

Will my predictions turn out to be correct? I can't wait to never hear about any of these people ever again, so I don't really care.
 
2013-12-02 10:15:41 PM
That guy is in the NAACP and has black relatives? He's so white he's nearly translucent.

Hmmm.

Er, yeah.


It also ignores that RDJ wasn't playing "a black guy," but was explicitly "a white guy in blackface," and that the White Chicks example doesn't have the cultural background of a minstrel show working against it.  Not familiar enough with Soul Man to comment one way or the other, but in at least three of the four cases, these jagoffs are arguing that same cliche, painfully obvious "it's not racist because someone else did something vaguely similar once."

My bad. I didn't know making asinine assumptions on limited information and sounding like a cockbag in this thread was your purview. I'm kinda new at it so all apologies for the faux pas. Fortunately there was a highly experienced cockbag to come make his own asinine assumption and guide me along on the protocol of these things. Thanks.

My older brother finds this kind of stuff hilarious.

Seriously, you can't even go to a Chinese restaurant with him. He makes the slanty-eye face and says "ah so" over and over again.

I shiat you not, when the waitress brings the food, he loves to "thank" her by saying "oh! Me so hungry! Me love you long time!"

You'd think his wife would club him one, but she just sits there and giggles. It's as if she gets off on embarrassment. Maybe that's why my brother does it?

And the kicker? MY BROTHER IS A FRICKIN' CITY COUNCILLOR.
