Seth MacFarlane: Korean-American comedian Margaret Cho looks like ‘Gangnam Style’ singer
I'm a fan of all Margaret Cho's work, but I think Gangnam Style might be the coolest thing she's ever done.

MacFarlane is comparing Cho to Korean singer “Psy,” the man responsible the viral “Gangnam Style” video:
Cho’s comedy may be vulgar, but that’s no excuse to attack her looks. It’s unclear whether MacFarlane is suggesting that Cho resembles a Korean man or that all Asians look alike. In either case, MacFarlane’s tweet is disgraceful, and it’s certainly unbecoming of an Academy Awards host.
nice to see that Oscar host @SethMacFarlane is dropping racist jokes about all Asians looking alike on his Twitter feed

@SethMacFarlane gotta love racist jokes. Except no wait, I don't. I'll add this to my list of reasons you're not funny.
