In the video, Koshy and Dobrik are trying “foreign” candy and at one point, they pretend to speak Japanese. David says, “It’s not racist, that’s like the tones I discover when they talk.” Liza then doubles down on his comments, saying, “No, it’s not racist as long as I save saying ‘no.'” She says this more than once as he is continuing to conclude prejudiced jokes.
TikTok user @callmesukiwi called out the duo in a video on June 21 with the caption, “Why is no one talking about this? It’s a clear example of the normalized racism against Asians.” The textbook in the video says, “They’re trying Japanese candy and pretending to talk in Japanese as a joke. Isn’t that still … racist ??? ”
The video has over 1 million views and 73,000 likes.
Late Sunday, Koshy addressed the contentious video and rationalized for her acts.
“While we are concentrated on systemic anti-black racism in home countries, I’ve been hesitant to center my spokesperson. My work has been within but I now recognize and take responsibility for the times I was not the ally I am becoming today, ” Koshy wrote. “Being anti-racist requires a personal reckoning, and I can’t in good faith continue to use my scaffold for progress without taking accountability myself.”
She continued: “As a woman of pigment and a self-defined’ little brown girl.’ I have experienced the distres of sexisms in my working life. However, this really does not exempt me from the responsibility of acknowledging the times I’ve unknowingly continued prejudiced notions … Consider this my resignation from foolishnes, and my pronouncement as an ally in action.”
