Podcast Hosts Fired For Making Racist ‘Jackie Chan’ Jokes With Chinese Accents On Air
Manchester City has reportedly fired two radio presenters who made “racist” Jackie Chan jokes with Chinese accents while on air.
Mike McClean and Nigel Clucas are both members of the club’s casual staff who worked at the ‘City Square’ outside the Etihad Stadium before matches. The men are also hosts of ‘City Sausage,’ a short-lived podcast dedicated to Manchester City, reports MailOnline.
McClean, who played the role of the “Mr. Wong” character, said: “‘you like Jackie Chan? Me (sic) like Jackie Chan! We no [sic] have paperwork or Jackie Chan film on plane. You need Jackie Chan film on plane.”
While the “City Sausage” podcast itself is not affiliated with the Premier League champions, the joke is seen as a significant embarrassment since 13% of the City Football Group is owned by Chinese investors.
