Dim Sumofa Bitch -- Rourke Takes Shot at Asians

12/3/2008 12:02 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It wasn't just politically incorrect -- things got downright offensive last night when Mickey Rourke told a fan whose camera wasn't clicking, "You're Asian, you're supposed to be able to take pictures."
Mickey Rourke: Click to watch
He did go out of his way to pose three separate times for the fan, but for a guy who already got into hot water for offending the gay community this year, Mickey might wanna be more careful about what comes out of that mouth.

MR wasn't being racist. Just a joke. I'm Asian American and didn't take it that way at all. Anyways that guy with the camera should have gotten his camera act together. How annoying was he to keep on bugging MR for another then another picture. MR was cool & patient enough to let him take 3 pics. Lighten up.

Mickey's right, an asian who can't take a pic is useless. Hey, where's the dog?

TMZ is right,he is a dumb son of a bitch.

Anybody who makes or agrees with racist jokes is obviously RACIST. If you're going to do it, own it and admit you're a bigot. Otherwise, shut your ignorant mouth.

.......but it's OK for TMZ to use the phrase "Chinese fire drill" in prior posts (Britney: Chinese Fire Drill Cover-up?)

His face is more offensive than the crack he made.

What comes out of his mouth may be offensive, but HE HAS THE RIGHT TO SAY IT. We have FREE SPEECH in this country and everyone who tries to stifle another person's rights doesn't belong here. Go live in a communist country if you think people should be censored.

OK Freedom of speech AND freedom of reaction. Yeah, he has the right to say it but others also have the right to be offended or let you, Mickey, or anyone know that they are offended. Like you said, freedom of speech. if you don't like it, YOU go live somewhere else.

Per    

The "gay" community already says whatever the hell they want and always gets a free pass, so I'm not sympathizing for them about something Mickey Rourke said. As far as the Asian comment, damn, lighten up, that's really not a big deal. If something is said about white people it's never questioned. Obama's church was more racist than any church I'm sure David Duke ever attended, and look at the variation of those 2 outcomes. All rascism is wrong, but some people, whites included, become that way because of bad experiences. I'm really sick of the double standards in this country.

Let him say what he wants. I would say the same thing. Enough with this having to be politically correct stuff - if the guy is offended, then he should walk away. People have a right to be offended just like we have a right to say what we want and vice versa.
