Fighting Hate with Hate: Anti-Asian Rant Inspires Misogyny

Fighting Hate with Hate: Anti-Asian Rant Inspires Misogyny

Over the weekend, a UCLA student posted an ignorant rant titled “Asians in the Library” that quickly became a viral video…I expected those who responded to this offensive video to be more thoughtful than the student who let loose with the jaw-droppingly racist rant. Instead, most of the comments used nasty gender slurs. Many derided the student’s large breasts, blonde hair and weight, and some suggested that rape or other violence be used against her.
