Liza Koshy Apologised For Her Past Videos That "Perpetuate Racist Ideas" And "Enforce Stereotypes"
"Consider this my resignation from ignorance, and my declaration as an ally in action."
YouTuber Liza Koshy has apologised for "perpetuating racist ideas" and "enforcing stereotypes" in past videos.
Last week, TikTok user @callmesukiwi posted a clip of an old video of Koshy and her then-boyfriend David Dobrik. In the video, they taste-tested Japanese candy, and mockingly pretended to speak Japanese.
"It's not racist. That's, like, the sounds I hear when they talk," Dobrik says in the video.
"No, no, it's not racist as long as I keep saying 'no'," Koshy replies.
The pair repeat the same "joke" in another video where they tested Hawaiian candy. "They're trying Japanese candy and pretending to talk in Japanese as a joke," the TikTok user wrote on the video. "Isn't that still... racist?"
