Once again everyone’s worst nightmare is rearing its ugly head.
The highly offensive internet cartoon “Mr. Wong” has been
released on DVD by National Lampoon and Maverick Entertainment. For
those who don’t know, Mr. Wong is an 85-year-old hunchbacked Chinese
houseboy in the service of a Caucasian socialite. He is depicted as
a lemon-yellow buffoon with slanted eyes, bucked teeth and tortured
pronunciation. The DVD was released on February 17th and is in many
MANAA, along with several other Asian groups have protested this cartoon
in the past to much success. But for some reason, companies still believe

First, we ask our members and supporters to write or call Maverick Entertainment
president Doug Schwab. Maverick is one of the major distributors of

images for the American Audience - use this argument when you write/call
