Meet Ali Wong’s ‘Asian Unicorn’ Husband Justin Hakuta
When Ali Wong’s latest stand-up dropped on Netflix, my mother, 47, plunged onto the sofa, ordered her guilty pizza and sent me out to disappear for the next hour or two. There was no better way to spend Mother’s Day.
By the time it was over, she had interesting questions. Most were curiosities on motherhood stuff I was ignorant about, but I listened anyway.
For one, she wondered how Wong, who filmed “Hard Knock Wife” while pregnant with her second child, seemed to have so much energy that motherhood looked practically effortless.
But she also recalled one part when Wong goes into about sniffing her baby 26 times a day for soiled diapers, and how she, while telling her husband “till death do us part,” had never “sniffed his a** to check if he sh*t his pants.”
She then asked me, “Who is her husband, again?” Apparently, it’s the same question her amigas had.
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
