I ran across this article and I couldn’t stop laughing. Obviously men around the world find Asian women but few go as far as TV journalist Martin Bashir.
Bashir who hosts the news show 20/20 and who is well known for his 1995 interview with Princess Diana as well as his 2003 documentary on Michael Jackson, Living with Michael Jackson, was speaking to the Asian American Journalists Association’s annual banquet when he blurted out “I’m happy to be in the midst of so many Asian babes. In fact, I’m happy that the podium covers me from the waist down.”
Now at this point I think most people would recognize they had made a social faux pas and tried to be on their best behavior. Bashir isn’t one of those people. When introducing his speech he said that it would be “like a dress on a beautiful woman – long enough to cover the important parts and short enough to keep your interest – like my colleague Juju’s”. The audience booed Bashir.
Now, keep in mind that the Juju he’s referring to is his co-host on 20/20 and a very respected journalist.
I want to party with this guy!
