Comedian Esther Ku Has a Serious Problem With Using Racist, Self-Hating Asian Jokes for Laughs
Up-and-coming comic Esther Ku has been trying to build her career in comedy by making fun of Asian people.
Most notable for her eleventh place finish (out of 12 contestants) in NBC’s sixth season of the defunct reality show “Last Comic Standing” back in 2008 , Ku’s jokes have mostly been recycled jabs on Asians based on stereotypes.
Almost a decade later, Ku is apparently still using the same punchlines in her acts and even her social media accounts, where she usually throws out her unfunny one-liners
To call out the female comic, Twitter user @axegang_123 recently compiled some of her most cringe-worthy tweets in recent years:
In her most recent video, Ku shared her tips on “How to get an Asian girlfriend,” in which she portrayed Asian women as easy targets even for a “gross” White guy. Taken from her hugely unpopular hour-long YouTube podcast “Hello Crypto Kitty Podcast,” the clip was just under a minute long but she was still able to squeeze in nail salons and massage shops.
