'Hangover' Star Ken Jeong

Kim Jong-il Over Stereotypes

9/8/2011 3:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

090811_TV_ken_still

"Hangover" actor Ken Jeong was asked if he could kick Kim Jong-il's ass in a street fight -- so, is the question racist? And it has nothing to do with them both being Korean. Okay, maybe a little.

Do any of you simpletons at TMZ know the meaning of the word "racist"? Look it up sometime and maybe TMZ can use it properly and contribute to a more intelligent viewership.

Ken Jeong is not afraid of shock humor. (nude scene in 'The Hangover'). The question is funny and i bet he didnt mind.

Both are Korean. How is it racist? Is asking if Brad Pitt would kick Charlie Sheens butt, that is racist then?

I'm really starting to think to be hired at TMZ all you really have to do is be a complete and utter moron that's way over sensitive to everything.

I'm Korean/American and wasn't offended by it at all.... It was stupid to even ask if it was. Why is TMZ trying to stir the pot and throw the race crap out there for everything. I do get defensive about it sometimes because I dont fit the stereotype. I'm bad at math and spent 8 years in the U.S. Navy.... Hoorah

I don't get why it's racist. I do get that politically correct idiots love to make an issue out of nothing. If there's a debate or question about it being racist, then it's probably not 'outright' racism. It is a question of whether we're talking about racism trumped up by people who like to sensationalize every word with every bit of imagined scrutiny they can muster. To me that there is a question means that it does not pass the litmus test of genuine racism.

So, if somebody asked Tina Fey if she could kick Sarah Palin's ass, would that be racist? There is a point where trying not to be offensive becomes offensive.
