Lisa Chan Apologizes for Racist Ad

Last week we posted about Pete Hoekstra’s anti-Chinese campaign ad, aired during the Super Bowl in Michigan. (Revisit that post here.)

Today Lisa Chan, the actress from the ad, issued an apology for appearing in the ad. In her statement she says, “I feel horrible about my participation and I am determined to resolve my actions.” Read the whole statement here

What do you think about Chan’s apology? Why do you think she starred in the ad in the first place? 

On a side note, we’re pleased to report that Hoekstra’s poll ratings dropped 11 points after the release of the ad. His opponent, incumbent Debbie Stabenow has received $170,000 in donations in response to the ad. Hoekstra’s camp has since released an apology.
