WATCH: Awkwafina and Margaret Cho Lampoon Asian Stereotypes on Edgy ‘Green Tea’

By Sameer Rao May 31, 2016

No matter what you think of Margaret Cho, you have to admit—she’s edgy as hell. So the Asian-American comedic pioneer’s new collaboration with fellow comedian and rapper Nora "Awkwafina" Lum shouldn’t be wholly surprising.

Echoing Cho’s recent social media advocacy against Hollywood’s racist treatment of Asian-American performers, the performers’ "Green Tea" sends up nefarious Asian stereotypes (prevalent in media that continually Whitewashes performers and characters of Asian descent) with profanity-laden lyrics like ""Flip a stereotype, how an Asian bitch got concubines?" The video features Awkwafina and Cho rapping in a variety of satirical costumes and scenarios, including a recurring situation where Cho channels the disturbing ghosts from "The Grudge."

Check out the video above, and let us know what you think in the comments.
