Are You Offended By the Lucky Fortune iPhone App?


Ryan Tate at Gawker just tipped us off to Lucky Fortune, “a fortune cookie app built around what can only be described as a ‘ching-chong Chinaman’ theme.” While we refuse to pay the 99 cents to download it, the video is rather incriminating: In addition to a bad imitation of a Chinese accent (think Kathie Lee imitating Al Roker imitating a Chinese person), Lucky Fortune also features gongs and that stereotypical strings arrangement that played every time Long Duk Dong came on screen in Sixteen Candles.

In their words, “This is a must have application if you enjoy uplifting themes, creative applications, or if you just like fortune cookies.” How long do you think before Apple wises up and this racist app disappears?
