Songwriter Calls for the Eradication of All Black People

So this is a pretty offensive/disturbing piece about Jenny Hyun, the songwriter for Girl’s Generation and Chocolat, posting MINDBLOWINGLY RACIST posts about black people on twitter. She posted this tirade after reading Floyd Merryweather’s tweet about Jeremy Lin—“Jeremy Lin is a good player but all the hype is because he’s Asian. Black players do what he does every night and don’t get the same praise.”

And in response, Hyun called for the eradication of all black people…

Angry Asian Man posted this update:

At some point, realizing that her statements were just a little bit offensive, she issued an “official apology to the black community”, in which she doesn’t actually apologize at all, in any way. Shortly after that, this troubling statement appeared on her blog:

apology to all
Posted on February 19, 2012 by Jenny Hyun

Jenny Hyun has been admitted to a hospital today. She is a paranoid schizophrenic and has been battling mental illness, a debilitating disease for many years. Friends and family of Jenny want to extend their sincere apology for any harmful statements made verbally or via the web that Jenny has made while she was in the height of a psyshosis episode. We appreciate your understanding during this difficult time for her.”

I don’t know — do you buy it? She apparently has a self-described history of mental illness. Well, it’s clear that something’s wrong with Jenny Hyun. I’m not sure what a “psyshosis episode” is, but it doesn’t quite explain away or justify the ugly attitudes revealed in her behavior. This is a pretty naked display of racism, and it kind of blows your mind.

Racist, terrifying, and seriously mindboggling.
