Lawyer sparks furor with post about Asian-Americans, claims she&#039s receiving threats

A lawyer in Southern California drew backlash and reportedly received threats final week right after an online post that she titled, &quotThe Asians that took more than Orange County.&quot

In the now-deleted post, Christina Ignatius compared the Asians and Asian-Americans she has encountered with those in the hit film &quotCrazy Wealthy Asians.&quot Even though the post has been deleted, a copy was captured and posted by the Asian-American news web site&nbspNextShark, which very first reported on it.

&quotMy friend stated that there is anything coming out known as Crazy Wealthy Asians. It reminds me of all the Asians who flooded into Orange County and then took more than our mall at South Coast Plaza,&quot Ignatius wrote.

&quotMy buddy mentioned that there is something coming out referred to as Crazy Rich Asians. It reminds me of all the Asians who flooded into Orange County and then took over our mall at South Coast Plaza.&quot

She added that she attended the University of California at Irvine with &quota lot of rice rockets,&quot claiming Asians &quotflooded that college.&quot

In other comments, the lawyer referred to the stereotype that Asians are bad drivers.&nbsp

&quotThey will drive their Mercedes in the carpool lane and then cut across five lanes to get more than to the mall, as if your vehicle next to them did not even matter, &quot she wrote. &quotThat’s why we have the term ‘driving like an Asian.’&quot&nbsp

Soon after being contacted by the&nbspOrange County Register&nbspabout the furor her post caused, Ignatius mentioned she &quotdidn’t have any intent of anger and hatred,&quot so wasn’t deserving of criticism and threats.

&quotIf you have no malintent, you did not do something incorrect,&quot she told the paper. She mentioned the post was &quotmeant as a joke&quot for her Facebook close friends, according to the Register.&nbsp

&quotIf you have no malintent, you didn&#x27t do something wrong.&quot

&ldquoThey (Asians) poke fun at themselves,&rdquo she said. &ldquoI really like them. I operate with them. I adore their culture. That&rsquos why I really like &lsquoThe Things Asian Moms Say.&rsquo&ldquo&nbsp

But Susan Kang Schroeder, the Korean-born chief of employees for&nbspOrange County District Lawyer Tony&nbspRackauckas, wrote a Facebook post of her own, denouncing Ignatius’ post, according to the Register.&nbsp

&ldquoI am saddened by your racist, insensitive and basically unacceptable post,&rdquo she wrote. &ldquoIt&rsquos difficult to imagine that an lawyer in Orange County would make such an ignorant post in 2018.&rdquo
