I Now “Identify” As Chinese


Mike Huckabee drew widespread outrage on social media for a tweet claiming that he will “identify” as Chinese.

The former Arkansas governor, 65, attracted controversy from Twitter users who were offended by his Saturday morning tweet listing reasons he is choosing to “‘identify’ as Chinese.”

“I’ve decided to ‘identify’ as Chinese. Coke will like me, Delta will agree with my ‘values’ and I’ll probably get shoes from Nike & tickets to @MLB games,” Huckabee wrote. “Ain’t America great?”

The comments were widely criticized by Twitter users, many of whom found the tweet insensitive in light of reports rising rates of anti-Asian hate crimes throughout the nation.
