A New Jersey CVS is being sued after a photo center employee returned the woman's photos with the name Ching Chong Lee instead of her actual name. Hyun Jin Lee, whose name is pronounced a very different way that we're not entirely sure of, was horrified to see this totally idiotic joke at the expense of her Korean heritage when she picked up her photos. Lee's official complaint explains, "Ching chong is a pejorative term sometimes used by speakers of English to mock people of Chinese ancestry, or other Asians who may be mistaken for Chinese.” At least they could have made a good Korean joke, like, "Man, Korean people sure love printing photos." See? Racism isn't funny.
