Megan Lochte Was Just Doing a Skit, You Guys

Megan Lochte has offered up an excuse for that video where she repeatedly called Chinese people “chinks.” She says it was just a skit to provoke discussion about the nature of prejudice. In essence, she’s moved on from insulting just the Chinese to pretty much everyone who saw the video basically sending out a statement calling them idiots.

“This was not a real interview, and it in no way reflects my true feelings or persona whatsoever,” Locthe tells Us Weekly in a statement. “The intent was to make fun of the ignorance of people who actually do not have an understanding of other cultures and speak in racist ways.”

“The skit and my character were supposed to be making fun of ignorance,” the Multicultural Marketing major continues — not “any culture or class of people.”

“I do see how it was highly offensive to the viewer, but as seen by today’s widespread outrage, it clearly did increase awareness of the ignorance of those who are racist,” Lochte asserts, adding that she realizes people may still find the humor in poor taste.

“While the intent of the script was to shed light on cultural ignorance,” Lochte says, “I realize that in application it did offend people, and for that I apologize.”

This despite the fact that no other interview featured in show archives have been a skit. Regardless, this isn’t even an apology. This is just Megan saying, “I’m sorry if you were offended because you were too dumb to realize this was me satirizing ignorant people.” Hm, why yes, of course! I totally see it now. Her repeated use of “chink” was just biting social commentary. She should take her show to the Apollo and satirize the prejudice against black people. People will love it.

    These people must think we’re all as dumb as they are. This lie they’re trying to pass off as some sort of half-assed apology is just adding insult to injury.

    It’s only funny when Lisa Lampinelli does it

    You are right it is not a real interview and she probably thought it was a “closed microphone situation”. Therefore she spoke what she REALLY thought…that she is (not the use of present tense) a RACIST.

    Oh puh-leeeez….Asians are the last ethnic group where it is still fashionable (by whites) to racially harass. Most whites, even if they are not overtly racist, sympathize with morons like Megan Lochte since they are all oblivious and wallow in their self-perceived racial supremacy.

    I forgot to add that you, Victor, are an idiot.

    By the way she’s working for a degree in… Multicultural PR. For real, this family is the very essence of ignorant white trash, that mother sexy talking about her moron of a swimmin son who likes sex with randoms, because you know she likes to watch him go at it and ten give interviews. No incest issues there at all Corporations and consumers! How did this guy make a team that represents anything USA, he’s a stupid, drunken, lout who can’t walk and talk at the same time?
