Asian-Americans speak out against Google app they call offensive

CNN : The maker of a Google app thinks it's fun to make yourself look Asian by changing the shape of your eyes and wearing a Fu Manchu mustache and rice paddy hat. (Culture, Google, Phones, Software)

It's kinda childish and not really funny...
... but TBH I really don't think this kinda stuff is worth getting upset about.

Just shrug your shoulders and move on. Who cares!? Seriously.

Can't get a job because you're asian!? That's racism.

Some dumb app for mentally challenged people who think that's funny!? So what!? I'm sure in Asia there will be apps which do the same thing in reverse, and worse.

Everybody's offended by everything anymore.

i can see why they'd find it offensive, it's based on an old racist stereotypical image.

if there was an app that let you black up like one of the black and white minstrels that would be considered offensive, this is just the same.
