Margaret Cho slams Arizona GOP over photo flub


All-American fail!

Margaret Cho is now responding to the news that Arizona Republicans had foolishly been using a photo from her now-defunct ABC sitcom "All-American Girl" to denote support from Asian Americans.

"I find this similar to when I was a kid someone told me that (Duran Duran frontman) Simon Le Bon's name was 'Mike Hunt' and so I went around school saying, 'I love Mike Hunt,' and even wrote it on my locker," Cho told Entertainment Weekly in a statement.

"I didn't bother to research and paid the price of a dodgeball to the face. They got some bad information and ran with it. They deserve a dodgeball to the face."

Cho wasn't the only one to rib the GOP over their photo fail. B.D. Wong, who also appeared on "All-American Girl," joked that the real hilarity lay in the fact that "they had no idea at least two people in that photo were depraved sexual deviants."

Vice News was the first to report on the mistake. The sitcom-still was situated between photos of other American-flag toting minority groups in an attempted show of the immense diversity of the Arizona Republican fan base.

The page, which now shows nothing but a 404 error and a shortcut back to the homepage, reportedly featured a blurb vowing that the party would never "demand special rights for certain races, push policies that favor members of one group over another, or single out certain ethnic or social groups with the promise of special favors or political privileges."

Arizona Republicans did not immediately respond to the Daily News' request for comment.

They did, however, release a statement to EW in which Communications Director Torunn Sinclair said, "as soon as this was brought to our attention, the page was taken down. This was obviously a mistake, and we apologize."
