William Hung Responds to Jimmy O. Yang, Joe Rogan for Saying He ‘Set Back Asians’ and He’s ‘Mentally Challenged’
William Hung has responded to negative comments from Jimmy O. Yang and Joe Rogan, saying that he is open to having a constructive conversation about the matter.
In June, Yang sat for an interview on “The Joe Rogan Experience,” in which he shared about receiving an offer to star in a William Hung biopic.
It was 2004 when William Hung was catapulted into reality TV-stardom via his off-key yet hilarious rendition of Ricky Martin’s catchy tune “She Bangs” in American Idol. Twelve years later, the Hong Kong native has got himself recently married and is now contently working for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
“American Idol” judge Simon Cowell may have deemed Hung as one of the worst singers he’d ever seen during his memorable audition, but many found his performance charmingly goofy, turning him into an instant global darling.
