I Now Pronounce You Racist

Posted by Jack Stephens on August 7, 2007

Jenn from Reappropiate blogs about the recent movie I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry and it’s use of yellow face:

A lesser publicized but equally weighty concern over this film, however, is its prominent use of yellowface for Rob Schneider’s (surprisingly) uncredited role as the minister who weds Chuck and Larry. Schneider’s scenes are within a few seconds of the trailer embedded above.

Bearing a stereotypical muschroom cut, bucked teeth, jaundiced skin, and glasses reminscent of Mickey Rooney’s Mr. Yunioshi in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Schneider plays up the ‘r/l’ slurs and stilted “Chingrish” typically used to mock recent Asian immigrants.

    Thank you SO MUCH for mentioning this degrading portrayal. The film and Rob Schneider should be boycotted for its OVERT racism.

    From a white gay man, who also has plenty of other reasons to despise that film.

    ROB SCHNEIDER, s.o.b. , can do that cuz there r plenty of white ppl who dosent give a damn about racism as long as the movie makes them laugh.
    Racism is a pure number game. BUT we’ll get them one by one, one at a time.. keep on pushing them into the spot lights.. hell yeah dont leave them alone..hehe.
