Comic Obsessed With Asian Dicks and Demeaning Asian Women Insists He’s Not Racist


Stand-up comic Owen Benjamin has recently come under fire for a racist and demeaning tweet against Asian men, in turn revealing a history of racially charged offensive rhetoric under the excuse that it’s comedy.

In one case, Benjamin is accused of perpetuating the false notion that Asian men have smaller penises than men of other races.

The tweet, posted on subreddit AznIdentity, was met with disgust and anger, and redditors further investigated the comedian to find more anti-Asian comments from him over the years.

Asian women are also a target for his commentary.

He even went for Eugene Gu, MD, a victim of a traumatic racial assault.

“White folks love to talk shit about Asian men while calling it humor/satire,” said one commenter, who had compiled a list of a plethora of incendiary tweets.

“How does this guy still have a career? These are cringy even by 1980s standards,” said another.

Indeed, Benjamin’s acting career has been lukewarm at best; nestled between characters such as “Angry Moviegoer #1” and “Cop”, his most prominent role appears to be on the now-cancelled sitcom, “Sullivan and Son“.

He now spends his days aggressively promoting his “huge pianist” and bears.

Like, to a degree that reeks of overcompensation.

“Disgusting,” said one redditor, before pointing out “the fact that it’s accepted and there are tons of people agreeing with him in that twitter conversation.”

Which did appear to be the case, as many jumped on Benjamin’s post about soy and dick size to add their own racist remarks.

Of course, others saw through the tasteless tweet and commented otherwise.

He has also made many horribly racist comments against other groups, including Black people.

He seemed to have no qualms about utilizing the classic Asian stereotype of the model minority myth against Blacks in a particularly horrid two-for-one.

No words.

Of course, it’s easy to imagine his stance on the H&M scandal from a few months back…

…so it would appear he might try just about anything for someone to notice him.

Naturally, Benjamin claims to not be racist.

But if considering the assertions came before pretty awful comments…well…
