Comedian Jason Cheny addresses Asian American 'arrogance' when asked where they're from


Comedian Jason Cheny asks "why Asian [Americans] have to hate on other Asians" in a video posted to his TikTok account.

In a clip of his act shared on Wednesday, Cheny points to an audience member and asks, "What's your ethnic background?"

"You're American obviously, yes?" Cheny notes before getting a response.

"'Cause they always give you grief," he explains to the audience. "Like sometimes I ask an Asian person, 'Where you from?' They're like, 'Uh America, land of the free. Where are you from?'"

"'Cause I'm an immigrant," continues Cheny. "So whenever an Asian person asks another Asian person and they're born in America, they have this f*cking arrogance. They'll be like, 'Uh, f*cking here, the greatest country of the free world,'" he mimics while putting a hand on his hip.

The comedian continues, exasperated, "I'm just like, 'Why do you gotta - you know what I'm asking, bitch. Just answer me where your f*cking face is from, man.'"

"We have the same kind of face; let's just bond, dude," Cheny adds as he interlocks his two hands.

The hilarious TikTok video has garnered over 240,000 views as of this writing and is his second post of the week.

Cheney is a Taiwanese American stand-up comedian based in Los Angeles who is currently on tour and is scheduled to perform in San Diego, California, from Aug. 19-20 before heading to Houston, Texas, on Aug. 25.

As of now, Cheny has stops lined up all the way to April 15, 2023, in Fort Worth, Texas, but appears to be adding more shows according to his social media.

    I tried to read through your writing in the midst of drowsiness. Because this article was written from a perspective that I've never thought about. I realized my knowledge and perspective were too narrow-minded. Thanks to you, I was able to see the world from a new perspective. Thank you so much. 토토사이트추천
