A recent piece by NBC Asian America reporter Kimmy Yam has readers divided for how it framed the recent attacks Asians are facing in the U.S.
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.”
Mindy Kaling recently revealed that the Television Academy once attempted to rid her of producer credit on “The Office.”
In an interview with Elle magazine, the 40-year-old actress shared that the organization in charge of the Emmy Awards attempted to drop her from the show’s producers list early on.
For those who tuned in to last night’s Night Two of the Democratic Presidential Primary Debates, it became obvious that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were the focus of most discussions during the event with one popular potential candidate receiving little to no airtime — Andrew Yang.
According to an analysis by The Hill, Yang received the least amount of airtime last night out of all 20 Democrats on stage during both nights of the debates, with just two minutes and 50 seconds of speaking time. This is far less compared to the other presidential hopefuls who were also among those granted the least amount time last night: author Marianne Williamson clocked in at four minutes and 49 seconds and Rep. Eric Swalwell at four minutes and 24 seconds, still nearly twice as much time compared to Yang.

A 13-year-old contestant on “America’s Got Talent” had judges and the audience up from their seats after his powerful rendition of Josh Groban’s “You Raise Me Up.”
Jeffrey Li, from Toronto, Canada, auditioned with the challenging song, which he says helped him when he felt lonely.
NBC is adamant about its pronunciation of Korean Olympic city, Pyeongchang, despite the fact that they’ve been pronouncing it incorrectly — on purpose.
In November, Mark Lazarus advised all NBC correspondents to use the wrong pronounciation because it sounds “cleaner.” Everyone from the @AAJA to Korean-American NBC reporters have tried to teach NBC. It’s not having an effect. They’re sticking w/ “chayng.”https://t.co/SIMbIXCRrG

Ann Curry is Probably Drinking a Tea Made of Matt Lauer’s Tears Right Now and Twitter is Here for It
What a hell of a morning to wake up to — Disney announced that they chose their Mulan (hint: it’s good news) and then NBC announced they’d fired Matt Lauer over allegations of sexual misconduct.
