Rosie O’Donnell Speaks “Ching Chong”

The View co-host is in hot water for using the expression “ching chong” to describe Chinese people talking about Danny DeVito’s drunken appearance on her show.

“The fact is that it’s news all over the world. That you know, you can imagine in China it’s like: ‘Ching chong … ching chong. Danny DeVito, ching chong, chong, chong, chong. Drunk. The View. Ching chong,” O’Donnell said on a Dec. 5 episode of The View.

On Thursday, O’Donnell expressed surprise when she learned that some Asian Americans considered speaking in that kind of sing-song accent an insult as grave as calling a black person by the N-word. She sympathized with people who were teased for their language on the playground while they were growing up.

However, she warned that she was a comedian, and she did accents of all kinds — including the “Japanese Yiddish” accent of Dec. 5.

Finally, this morning on The View, she apologizes for the remarks, following mounting protest from Asian Americans across the country.

“There’s a good chance I’ll do it again next week,” she said. “That’s how my brain works.”

  1. Why do people pay attention to her blather anymore? I think she’s experienced some type of unfortunate head injury recently, she just seems to be hateful towards everyone. If not, it’s done for ratings. My surprise is that Ms. Sawyer continues to sully her own good name by having Rosie on the show. I pity what her life must be like for her to be so shallow. Maybe someday she will realize how much she is damaging herself and potentially damaging others.
