Rosie to Asians: Get Over It

12/9/2006 12:18 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rosie O'DonnellShe may not have used the N-word, but that doesn't mean Rosie O'Donnell is in the clear when it comes to race relations.

According to Page 6, Asian-Americans are fuming at "The View" host for saying that Danny DeVito's drunken antics made headlines in China that read: 'Ching chong, ching ching chong, Danny DeVito!"

"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," says the Asian-American Journalists Association. But Rosie's rep thinks they just don't get it: "I certainly hope that one day they will be able to grasp her humor."


Madonna and BritneyMadonna Gave Brit Kiss of Death?


When exactly did Britney Spears jump the shark? Writer Camille Paglia says it was when she kissed Madonna on the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards. Paglia told US that, in a sense, Madonna was saying, "'I'm passing the torch to you.' It was a fabulous moment. Britney looked toned, in control of her career. Literally from that kiss, from that moment onward, Britney has spiraled out of control." Thanks a lot, Madge.


Mariah CareyMariah to Porn Star: Back Off My Name, Bitch


Pop diva Mariah Carey is trying to stop porn star Mary Carey from trademarking her name, claiming that fans might get confused. Entertainment Weekly reports that Mary Carey, who has starred in films like "Double Air Bags" and "Boobsville Sorority Girls," finds the whole thing "silly." We're guessing Mariah just doesn't want anything distracting from her dynamic duo.

Seriously    

No matter what you say, SOMEONE will be offended by it.
No one is politically correct anymore. It's getting laughable.
Screw it. Quit being such freakin babies people!
As for Madonna & Britney, they're both skanks.

Oh yeah Its' not Ok to alude to Homosexuality or Dirty hands and that Sh*t with Clay and Ripa is so fr*kin lame ...no ... thats Ok . But lets' offend a fr*kin race of people and tell them to " lighten up " . Dickhead . Just shows how deeply insensitive Rosie really is . And her reps speaking for her are just as detached from reality . Rosie is High school drop-out who acts like she has a PHD . Someone needs to let the air out of this Parade Ballon of an Ego before a lampost gets knocked over on an old lady . Dickhead .

From Andy Dick, no surprise. But Rosie - she gets her panties in a twist anytime someone makes a remotely unPC comment about gays, but she can shrug off her own unPCness about Asians? That's HYPOCRISY! And as to what her publicist said, Asian Americans (or anyone, for that matter) will NEVER get her "humor." Why? Because it's NOT FUNNY!!!

Rosie is a blubbering idiot.

And does anyone else remember Madonna kissed Christina TOO? The much more talented diva!!!?? Madonna did not give Britney the kiss of death..Britney is just a clueless, classless girl who got really famous in an extremely lucky manner...we know she isn't talented enough to have gotten the fame she has. She plain just got lucky that her hype didn't die down years ago.

Ratings are higher than ever for The View. The only reason she'll quit is because she wants to, no one kills the golden goose, that would be stupid. She's says it like she sees it which is refreshing these days. All this PC crap is bullsh*t. I don't care what these celebrity/comedians say as long as they entertain me. That's their job. If you don't like it don't watch. Or are you saying you're nothing but a lemming and you can’t stop yourself from watching?

A smart 21 year old gal    

Rosie totally deserves it. I hope she gets slammed by everyone. She's a total hypocrite! She was so nasty to Kelly Rippa when she didn't want Clay Aiken to touch her saying she was a homophobic and now she doesn't care about being PC when it come to other people getting offended. Hypocrite bitch! I don't even like Kelly R. but I do believe Rosie made a storm in a glass of water just because she cries like a spoilt little child everytime someone says something she BELIEVES is not PC, of course, ONLY when it comes to gay causes (not to mention that she outed Clay...), now she says "get over it". Oh yeah... SHE is the one that needs to get over herself. What a dumbass! Karma is a bitch!

Oh well it is not like Rosie is white making the comment, she is a lesbian so it is not the same as if Richards sais it. It is OK as long as they are not blacks she is making fun of.

The View sucks. Between the redhead blabbering with her awful nasal NY accent, that Elizabeth Hassel...something (spelling?) (who is she anyway!) playing the virtuous saint, Barbara sitting there in judgment looking old and stiff and Rosie in her LOUD voice reminding us every 5 minutes that she is a lesbian, I can't imagine why they have an audience who wants to sit through that ordeal day after day.
