RiceGum Films Himself Terrorizing Hong Kong, Asks Locals Where to Eat Cats and Dogs
Asian American YouTuber Ricegum has offended viewers after filming himself in Hong Kong in a manner that many may consider to be disrespectful.
Ricegum, whose real name is Bryan Le, flew to Hong Kong with his vlogging sidekick, prankster M2THAK.
In the six-minute video, RiceGum, who repeatedly refers to Hong Kong as China, can be seen asking strangers where to eat dogs and cats, “where the hoes at” and whether massage services offered “happy endings.”
“Is that dog or something? That sh*t looks disgusting,” the YouTuber says while filming a dish on display.
At one point, RiceGum also hands out a half-eaten ice cream to a stranger who reluctantly accepts it.
Meanwhile, M2THAK can be seen undressing and moving mannequins to obscene positions.
RiceGum ends the rampage by saying that he enjoyed the experience and wished he had filmed more.
He claims the motive for his visit was that he’s tired of hearing people telling him to “go back to China” and commenting on his videos with common Asian stereotypes about eating cats and dogs.
The video has 3.3 million views as of this writing.
Many slammed RiceGum for his disrespectful stunts, comparing him to the infamous Logan Paul. Some even commented in Chinese.
