Students’ reactions to Wallace’s YouTube sensation

UCLA student, Alexandra Wallace, posted an appalling video on YouTube “Asians in the Library,” a rant about “hordes of Asians” at UCLA.  The video included a tirade of insulting language about their lack of “American” manners around campus and in the library.

The video soon became well known,with re-postings and even re-mixes. Responses to the video have ranged from college students speaking their minds on how her racist slurs are offensive or videos that make fun of her original “Asians in the Library” video.

Alexandra Wallace quoted in her video; “The problem is these hordes of Asian people that UCLA accepts into our school every single year…if you’re going to come to UCLA then use American manners.”

Many people, not only of Asian descent, are offended by her video.

When asked what he thought of the video, Randy Fong said, “Well I was okay with it until she got to the ching chong etc. part.”

Tanner Piety said, “It was funny, not the things she was saying, but how ignorant and incompetent she was.”

Wallace did take down her video on YouTube, though many viewers have copied the video posted it themselves.

Wallace apologized for her video after receiving negative comments and decided to no longer attend UCLA due to death threats that she felt would harm not only herself but also her family.

“In an attempt to produce a humorous YouTube video, I have offended the UCLA community and the entire Asian culture. I am truly sorry for the hurtful words I said…I have chosen to no longer attend classes at UCLA.” quoted Wallace.
