Want To Know How Annoying Yellow Fever Is? Check Out This Hilarious “White Fetish” Satire

 

About a month ago, YouTube personality Anna Akana gave us an (awesome) angry rant about yellow fever – something that many of us Asian women have experienced at one point or another.

“These men, the problem with them is that they don’t give a f— about who you really are. The idea of you is enough,” Akana rants. “I don’t understand why you would romanticize an entire race as being submissive or weak or docile or delicate or fragile or whatever the f— is the allure of Asian women.”

But some women, such as Joy Regullano, opt for other ways of showing disdain for yellow fever. In a sketch called “White Fetish,” Regullano uses satiric humor to turn the tables and show everyone just how annoying yellow fever truly is.

So for all the Asian women out there who have been called exotic, or who have had drunk men scream “Ni Hao” in their ear at a bar (’cause we all apparently speak Chinese), this ones for you.

 

Check Out This (Awesome) Angry Rant About Yellow Fever

 

You probably remember YouTube personality, Anna Akana, from her makeup tutorial that didn’t teach us anything about makeup, but was one of our favorites nonetheless. Obviously, only someone as awesome as Akana could pull off something like that.

Well, she’s back and this time, she’s angry. We can’t help but laugh along because the target of her anger happens to be something many of us have had to deal with: yellow fever.

Now before you get defensive and point out that people are allowed to have a “type,” you should know that Akana recognizes that, too. She’s not angry with men who happen to like Asian women; she’s angry at men who like women only because they’re Asian.

 

 

“These men, the problem with them is that they don’t give a f— about who you really are. The idea of you is enough,” Akana rants. “I don’t understand why you would romanticize an entire race as being submissive or weak or docile or delicate or fragile or whatever the f— is the allure of Asian women.”

“Now look, there’s nothing wrong with having a type,” she adds for clarification. “But yellow fever is when the only prerequisite for me to become your potential partner is the color of my skin. That’s cheap.”

Anna Akana, we couldn’t agree with you more.
