The video, accompanied by hip-hop music, begins with the woman applying patches of foundation darker than her skin tone all over her face.
She then evens it out to cover the rest of her face.
The woman proceeds to thicken her eyebrows, “enlarge” her nostrils and darken her eyelids with an eyeliner.
She then applies lipstick and draws cheek creases.
The makeup how-to concludes with the woman mimicking the look of a confused Black man, which appears to be a popular meme on Chinese social media.
The 16-second video garnered more than 4,000 likes and 200 comments as of this writing.So far, most users supported the woman’s crude attempt at humor — a similar stunt that drew one Chinese streamer a massive backlash just last month.
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.
