Democrats including actress Patricia Arquette were angered by a joke former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee made on Twitter.
Huckabee tweeted “I’ve decided to “identify” as Chinese. Coke will like me, Delta will agree with my “values” and I’ll probably get shoes from Nike & tickets to
@MLB games. Ain’t America great?”
Actress Patricia Arquette replied “Elderly Asian women are getting beaten up on the street and you say this?”
Others were also angry about Huckabee’s tweet.

“This is low, even for you. And *not* funny.
Just choose to identify as a decent human being by deleting this tweet and apologizing.”

“I just reported Huckabee’s tweet as hate speech to Twitter”
I’m not for nor against @GovMikeHuckabee – banning him helps nothing. My only question is what made you so upset, that you have to have him banned?
I really do want to know why/how you think this way? Basically what’s the issues here that justify taking away a man’s thoughts?
