Talk of the web: UCLA student's video slams Asians

A political science junior named Alexandra Wallace posted a video last Friday disparaging Asians in the campus library and at her apartment complex. She took it down after critical comments and death threats began flooding in over the weekend, but rips of the video went viral on YouTube, Facebook and beyond. Wallace apologized in a statement to the Daily Bruin, and UCLA's chancellor released a message saying he was appalled by the video. But the story was still all over the news tonight. The video has sparked anger and a spate of mocking re-mixes, like the one after the jump below Wallace's rant.
