Asian American Groups Urge NBC to Cut Ties With Jay Leno for Dog-Eating Joke

Jay Leno

A pair of Asian American organizations have urged NBC to sever ties with Jay Leno, citing the comedian’s repeated offense toward the Asian community with his fixation on a racist stereotype.

In separate statements, Asian Americans Advancing Justice (AAAJ) and the Media Action Network for Asian Americans (MANAA) condemned the 69-year-old for joking about Koreans eating dogs, one instance of which allegedly occurred during his stint as a guest judge on the 14th season of “America’s Got Talent.”
