Students' racist instagram manages to piss off the entire internet
Three students have managed to offend the entirety of the internet with one racist Instagram.
In today's face palm, 'what were you thinking?' news, three girls have managed to anger the whole internet with a poorly thought out Instagram caption.
In a now-deleted post, American Neuroscience student McKell Kellog posted the following photo of her with her friends in China:

The photo was accompanied by an absolutely horrific caption that screamed 'WHITE PRIVILEGE', reading:
"Since I'm in China, I'll speak to you in Chinese: Kung fu Panda, wonton, fri rice, neehow, egg roll, Jacky Chan, Mulan, chopsticks, bamboo, Shi Shi."
Can you imagine the brazen ignorance it takes to spend a shed-load of cash, fly to China, get a most-likely native person to take your photo and then OFFEND THEIR CULTURE with said photos caption? Mind blowing.
The post was then picked up on Twitter, and people were NOT happy:
Why does this happen like every fucking hour? Do y'all white people need to fill in a quota or some shit on being racist?— Geesubay (@geesubay) September 25, 2017
I am saddened by the lack of respect from these trashy white ppl, they do not represent us all. I apologise for their rudeness.— mark dickenson (@mardic123) September 26, 2017
"I have so much respect for Asian culture and people. Some of my closest friends are Asian." (Note: they will say Asian instead of Chinese)— sabrina majeed (@sabrina) September 25, 2017

Studies neuroscience LOL she should put that to use and re-evaluate how her own brain works— 0 mars 0clot 0 clout (@ImTheBest_duh) September 26, 2017
Since the post has gone viral, some people have even emailed the girls' university to voice their disgust at their ignorant insensitivity:
Thank u for the info !! pic.twitter.com/5nVaY2Z0TR— real deal eel (@rareeel) September 26, 2017
Both the girls and the university have yet to respond to these criticisms, but at the moment it seems unlikely that there will be any consequences.
