4. Many Are Offended by Gold's Video

With lyrics like, "I love Chinese food. You know that it's true. I love fried rice, I love noodles. I love chow mein, chow m-m-m-mein," many are taking the video as offensive. The Huffington Post reports:
But the video quickly devolves into a long list of Asian stereotypes that transforms Wilson's typical auto-tuned tween fare into something that's rather offensive, and manages to bring back faint memories of Day Above Ground's "Asian Girlz."
From Wilson dressing up in a panda costume and rapping in an Asian-sounding voice, to the young girls dressed in full geisha garb featured in the video, it's seems pretty clear that what's coming out of the Ark Music Factory these days is simply an exercise in trolling.
Nonetheless, while some are offended, others are praising Gold and creator Wilson.
@officialpatrice is genius. music trolling genius.
