Margaret Cho Slams Arizona GOP For Sitcom Pic Blunder

Margaret Cho brought an Asian American family to television with her 1994 sitcom “All-American Girl” — and the Arizona GOP just used the show’s photo to represent their support of Asian Americans.

As reported by VICE News, the Arizona Republican Party’s website featured a page dedicated to Asian Americans declaring they will never “demand special rights for certain races, push policies that favor members of one group over another, or single out certain ethnic or social groups with the promise of special favors or political privileges.”

The political party used Cho’s promotional photo from the show thinking it was a real family or stock photo.

Cho, an adamant critic of the GOP who called the party “a nightmare” last year, seemed dumbfounded speaking to VICE. “I find this similar to when I was a kid someone told me that Simon Lebon’s [Duran Duran] name was “Mike Hunt” and so I went around school saying ‘I love Mike Hunt’ and even wrote it on my locker,” she said. “I didn’t bother to research and paid the price of a dodgeball to the face. They got some bad information and ran with it. They deserve a dodgeball to the face.”

The photo and page has since been taken down.
