Asian American Rapper Jin Takes Aim At Rosie O’Donnell

Asian American rapper

Jin has released a diss record aimed at talk show host Rose O’Donnell, after O’Donnell

host made what many felt were racist comments directed towards Asian Americans

last month. During

an episode of ABC’s The View, O’Donnell was describing how actor Danny

DeVito’s drunken appearance on the show had garnered international headlines.

O’Donnell

gave an impression of what a Chinese newscaster sounded like when reading the

story and claimed that the reporter spoke in nothing but "chings and chongs.""It’s

news all over the world," O’Donnell said. "You can imagine in China

it’s like, ‘ching chong, ching chong, Danny DeVito, ching chong, ching chong…"Jin

has responded to O’Donnell’s comments with the recently released single, " You’re Fired," which features the rapper hurling insults at O’Donnell for her off

color comments about Asians."I

recorded the song basically for the same reason she decided to do her little ‘ching

chong’ bit: that’s just how I am," Jin said of the single.

The

song, which features Jin rapping over Nas’ song "Ether," also interjects

clips of Donald Trump commenting on the matter, who states that he would have

fired the famous talk show host for her racist remarks. Trump

and O’Donnell are also involved in a bitter feud, after O’Donnell blasted the

real estate and television mogul for his decision not fire current Miss USA Tara

Conner for questionable behavior, after she won the Miss USA competition.The

Asian American Journalists Association also chastised O’Donnell for her impression,

calling the impression "a mockery of the Chinese language.""The

use of the distorted phrases is insulting to the Chinese and Chinese Americans

and gives the impression that they are a group that is substandard to English-speaking

people," said Rene M. Astudillo, Executive Director of the Asian American

Journalists Association. "We find it especially disturbing that this incident

comes from a well-loved personality and a television program aired on a respected

network."Jin

has also registered a new domain name, abcjin.com and is planning new album titled

ABC, which is slated to be released Feb. 20.
