Shane Gillis, Ms. Swan, and when it’s acceptable to make fun of Asians

Shane Gillis, Ms. The comedian Shane Gillis may have a future career as a racist Twitch streamer, or as vice president in the future Joe Rogan administration, but at least one job will remain out of his reach forevermore: Saturday Night Live cast member, after his unceremonious shitcanning on Monday afternoon.

Once again, the burden of making amends will have transferred to the aggrieved party. As with Stephen Colbert and the Oscars , when it was time to make fun of a racial group, a comedian picked the Asians because they assumed there could be no meaningful blowback. Gillis was just too stupid to be clever about it. Swan, portrayed by The Marvelous Ms. Maisel actress Alex Borstein, was an immigrant of unspecified origin who spoke in a halting cadence and pitched pronunciation, getting herself into comedic situations in which she looked manipulatively naive or actually stupid.

To anyone of Asian descent, however, Ms. Swan was painfully recognizable as a crude stereotype. She had a severe bowl cut; her porcelain skin was flushed with rouge; she worked at a nail salon; she wore the sexless muu-muus of many grandmothers; and her accent immediately evoked every callous impersonation of an Asian woman. Kwan — a traditionally Chinese surname — before it was changed.

Some Asian activists protested Ms. Not enough people cared. She left the show in , but made a few more appearances as Ms. But why no consideration of Ms. Is it because the character makes fun of Asians? Of women? Of Asian women? Borstein continues to work to acclaim — she won an Emmy for Maisel — while Ms. Swan was swept into the dustpan of forgotten racist characters.

Swan a few years before for a sketch about the election. She was 29 when that editorial ran, which is younger than I am now. He and I are the same age. But in every instance, it was offensive, cruel, and dehumanizing.

I did not feel morally enlightened whenever I walked away. I do not feel morally enlightened for no longer finding Ms. Contrary to what some people might assume, I do not want to reach back through time and retroactively cancel Borstein. I just want to be clear about what was going on. Whenever I posted about Gillis, I invariably heard from multiple Twitter users who seemed baffled I could be angry, some of whom predictably accused me of participating in cancel culture.

Yang appears to find racism boring — in response to someone calling them a chink, he claims Asians should turn the other cheek. Condescending appeals to the high ground aside, it should be obvious, in , that patience and open-heartedness are not our best methods for fighting the malice at the heart of racism.

The pain of Asians is not something to be disregarded or pushed down, even as Borstein, Gillis, and Yang all believed, at some point and in their own way, that the aggrieved should just try harder. But one thing has definitively and meaningfully changed: Making fun of them no longer comes without repercussion.
