TMZ VS. CHARLYNE YI - REDUX

PWNED, INDEED! As predicted, Charlyne Yi's video rebuttal to TMZ's Hackety-Hatchet Job is fast approaching the 100,000-page view mark. I emailed Charlyne to ask her thoughts:

It's wonderful that everybody is coming together, reposting, helping, and donating. That was was the hope of me making and uploading that rebuttal video. To inspire people, and explore the idea that we all have the power to help, but it's what we do with our power that defines us.

As far as her rebuttal video getting more views than the well-produced Oxfam video she helped create last month, she wrote:

I think it's interesting what videos grab attention. I haven't the slightest clue of how to make somebody care. But I'm happy that people are, and donating.

Funny how these things work themselves out. And with so much social stuff going on these days / this week, get involved! Or at the very least, get aware! Ignorance isn't always bliss.

TMZ PWNS CHARLYNE YI, OXFAM

Musta been a slow news day at TMZ to want to stitch up Charlyne Yi. The Schaudefraude Shit Show asked the comedian-actor-musician to be filmed by their shaky handicam crew while busking for OxFam International, a global-aid organization. The end result, even by TMZ's standards, is an exercise in Super Lame Douchebaggery, as the editors cut a not-funny video that basically craps all over Yi and dismisses OxFam outright. However, I'm willing to bet donuts to dollars that by week's end the video Yi posted (above) will out-pageview the bona fide video she shot for Oxfam (below). Wouldn't that be ironic?
