    Accused of racism, a Parisian restaurant removes from its menu a salad called "Tching Tchong".



    Due to the growing controversy, Christophe Adam, the head of the establishment, apologized "to the entire Asian community" and all its "customers" after recognizing the "awkward", "offensive" and "pejorative" name.

    A friend of mine put "Chinese cocktail" on a drink menu on his last night at a fancy restaurant. A Chinese cocktail is water with lemon. Not sure how racist, but funny af

    -> Restaurant named Tching Tchang Tchang in Bordeaux
    SJW: REEEEEEEEEEEE!!! Cultural appropriation! Racism!
    -> Owned by 3 Vietnamese sisters, making fun of themselves / not taking themselves seriously
    SJW: ... Oh. I bow down to the supreme wisdom of the sisters of colour.

    Let me guess. No actual Asians gave a fuck, but 3 or 4 pasty white liberals did and this is the result.

    I think you missed the point, but others did as well lol. It's from a hbomberguy video where he actually mocks silly talking points like that, as if you could somehow go from ''racist'' to ''too not racist''.

    In Thai "ting tong" means stupid. Sometimes pronounced as "ding dong" to add emphasis.
