"Asian Girlz" is even more racist than it sounds

We might have a winner for the most racist song of the summer.

We might have a winner for the most racist song of the summer.

It's called "Asian Girlz," and it's the newest song from L.A.-based band Day Above Ground. The band members ogle at model Levy Tran in a cage as she undresses in a room filled with stereotypical Asian items. All the while, the band sings about anal sex and how it's not sure whether she's "17 or 23."

Joe Anselm and Drew Drumm spend a full minute just naming different typical Asian food and pop culture, Asian towns in Southern California, and a chorus of "ra ra ra's," and the song also features other choice lyrics such as “I love your creamy yellow thighs / Ooh your slanted eyes” and “It’s the Year of the Dragon / Ninja pussy I’m stabbin’.”

It makes Brad Paisley and L.L. Cool J's collaboration on "Accidental Racist" look tame in comparison.

The band took the video down after people complained in the comment section, but they put it back up with a new video description.

"Our song 'Asian Girlz' was not written with any malicious, hateful, or hurtful intent," the band wrote. "We know it is racy and does push the boundaries further than other songs out there. Understand that we do not promote or support racism or violence."

However, nobody's buying their apology. The video is overwhelmed with dislikes and comments calling the band racist. And people are now attacking Tran online for agreeing to be in the video in the first place and accusing her of "selling out."

She, in part, apologized for her participation in the video and defended Day Above Ground.

A Mexican-American boy sang the National Anthem, and racist NBA fans can't handle it
Last night's NBA Finals game had all the intrigue of a spoiled CBS drama. The San Antonio Spurs got ahead early, Miami tied it up around the half, and then the Spurs came out in the second to whip LeBron James and company into a furrowed frenzy. By the time I left the arena, with six minutes remaining, the Spurs were up 30—and climbing. Final score: Spurs 113, Heat 77.
