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?"
