Swiss beauty blogger under fire for calling Asian people ‘Ching Chongs’

"Ching Chong" is old-fashioned speech but is only mildly derogatory.  It's not unreasonable to use the term to indicate that East Asians are seen as different

A POPULAR beauty blogger and model has come under fire for using a racist slur in a recent post.

In a review of a Korean cosmetics line, Swiss blogger and YouTuber ‘Cocomadkilla’ referred to people of Asian descent as “Ching Chongs”.

“As you may have noticed, you discover a lot of funny stuff in the east,” she began, which is already pretty eyebrow-raising.

“Many of us don’t understand the ‘Ching Chongs’ with the black hair and the funny clothes.”

Cocomadkilla has since deleted the offensive post but the internet hasn’t forgotten and people are furious.

“I keep trying to form some coherent retort but the level of racist idiocy displayed has made me speechless,” wrote one person in a discussion about the post on Reddit.

“It’s like we’ve taken a time machine and went back a few decades. Seriously?!” wrote another.
