"She's either genuinely just ignorant that is considered very racist, or she does it on purpose to be clickbaity"
YouTuber HRH Collection has come under fire for her series of “racist” videos.
HRH Collection, a YouTube channel run by Alexandra Peirce, has been accused of racism according to Babe. In particular, Peirce’s videos titled ‘IM DYING TO BE ASIAN’, ‘ASIAN WHITE GIRL’ and ‘CHINESE BILLIONAIRE’S DAUGHTER INSTRUCTION’ have come under fire.
Beauty blogger Sarah Cheung had screenshotted stills from Peirce’s videos and shared them on her Instagram story.
“She keeps making these videos about wanting to be Asian, dying to be Asian,” Cheung explained. “It’s very weird to me. I’m kind of bothered by this, because I think she’s either genuinely just ignorant that is considered very racist, or she does it on purpose to be clickbaity.”
“Videos like ‘IM DYING TO BE ASIAN’ are going to get a load of views. Of course there’s a problem with it.”
Cheung also highlighted that Peirce used a picture of a Korean girl to demonstrate a Chinese billionaire.
In the video titled ‘IM DYING TO BE ASIAN’, Peirce says she’s obsessed with “Asian stuff” and said, “ever since I lived in Shanghai, anything Asian just speaks to me.”
“I love going [to the mall] and being amongst Asian people,” she adds, but describes the malls as “shitholes” compared to American ones.
In her ‘ASIAN WHITE GIRL’ video, Peirce asks, “why do Asians always do the cutest shit ever?”
In ‘CHINESE BILLIONAIRE’S DAUGHTER INSTRUCTION VIDEO’, Peirce instructs her viewers how to dress like a young rich Chinese woman. “I really do feel like I’m capturing something that they would wear,” Peirce says.
“They’re very straight-faced people. They’re not very friendly. They might be friendly to themselves, I don’t know if they’re shy or nervous… They don’t even look at you. They’re just so in their own world because they have the best life ever with their two little friends. They seem very snobby, honestly. Very, very snobby.”
