Só mocking and comparing because of political difference is worse than purê hate against all white and or men? Fantastic.
Nowhere did I insinuate that hate against white people and men was acceptable. Jeong said some incredibly regrettable shit that shouldn't be accepted in our society and used vitriolic hate to target a large majority of America. That type of behavior isn't acceptable, but she's grown up since than and she's attempting to move on from her mistakes.
Here's her statement:
"I engaged in what I thought of at the time as counter trolling. While it was intended as satire, I deeply regret that I mimicked the language of my harassers. These comments were not aimed at a general audience, because general audiences do not engage in harassment campaigns. I can understand how hurtful these posts are out of context, and I would not do it again."
That statement might be intended to save her reputation, but its evidence of a person who's matured since the incident and is trying her hardest to not repeat the same mistakes she previously made.
I also think calling Roseanne's statements political mockery is somewhat short sighted. She compared a woman of color to an ape, apologized for her statement, took back her apology, and continued to mock this specific person while trying to underexaggerate her mistakes. I don't have a problem with political commentary and think its somewhat justifiable to make fun of someone for their political actions. I do not think its justifiable to make a racist statement and then try to humanize yourself for the consequences you faced for making that racist statement. She hasn't learned anything and the amount of support that she's gotten from groups of people will ensure that she'll never mature.Last edited by Smartie900 - on 03 August 2018
