Syndicated CBS Talk KLSX (97.1 FREE FM)/LOS ANGELES morning man ADAM CAROLLA has raised the wrath of the ASIAN AMERICAN JUSTICE CENTER for mocking the Asian Excellence Awards show on his JANUARY 24th show.
The group says that CAROLLA "demeaned the work of Asian American actors, directors, and producers and perpetuated the stereotype of Asian Americans as foreigners," according to Pres./Exec. Dir. KAREN K. NARASAKI, who adds that "unless (CAROLLA) is strongly reprimanded, and the station and CBS RADIO apologize, we will be forced to ask advertisers to withdraw their support of his show." CAROLLA joked about the awards show and used "ching-chong" sounds in a parody of the sound of the awards show.
