Andrew Yang on SNL's Shane Gillis' comments: Racial epithets hurt, but it's different with comedians

In an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper, Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang said racial epithets hurt, but in the case of comedians, words should be taken in a different light. This comes after Yang jumped into controversy on Twitter by responding to Shane Gillis', a new cast member on "Saturday Night Live," past racial remarks on a podcast. #CNN #News




  • Was really put off by the fact the anchor said Shane Gillis used Asian racial slurs “in his act”, when it was a crappy (OBVIOUS) joke mentioned during a long form podcast. I’m not saying racial slurs are cool, but for goodness sake man, your a news anchor speaking about someone AS NEWS, meaning everyone hears that and thinks this Shane guy is a racist comedian, when in reality the only racist comedian is Bert Kreischer!

  • Oh no he said Asians are really smart and a large percentage of them go on to be one of the most prestigious jobs we have. What’s next? Will it be racist to say Swedish people are good looking? Give me a fucking break, I refuse to play by these wackos rules

  • In 2004, our professor from college said a disturbing thing about local retailer stores going out of business in 10 years from then. I was very slow to realize the whole time he was referring to Amazon, Ebay and other online stores shopping domination.

  • Yang's "owning" of the racist myths is not only his right but it a nuanced way of pointing out how racist our society truly is. CNN is beginning to wake up to him after a lot of ignoring him completely.

  • Only the poorest of us dont get extra resources. The freedom divides replaces our resources. We are more than likely going to get $100 extra but at what cost. The vax will cause an increase in necessities that will be more of an economic hardship for us. He will cut safety nets once our $100 doesn't stretch as far as he he misleading ppl to believe. His healthcare will not be obtainable to us as he guts resources. His education plan leaves are children vulnerable when poverty has already vilified them. He does nothing for immigrants. So if you are an immigrant that loses your job you get nothing. Yang is the perfect politician. He keeps pretending that he isn't. He has been all this time. He is a ruthless capitalist. That's fine but dont play victim. The reason why the DNC doesn't give you a platform is because you dont hold any progressive values. You say #humanity when clearly you are a liar. You say medicare for all when clearly you are a liar. You say $1000 ADDITIONAL DISPOSABLE Income when clearly you are a liar. You say "no strings attached" when clearly you are a liar.
