Letter Returned to Westminster Because Someone "Don't Speak Gook": UPDATE

Letter Returned to Westminster Because Someone "Don't Speak Gook": UPDATE

UPDATE, 5:31 P.M.: The person whose address was listed as having rejected the letter contacted the Weekly and let us know that not only did they NOT write the "gook" note visible in the letter, but that they never even received the letter in the first place. As we wrote earlier, we openly wondered who actually wrote the note.

ORIGINAL POST, 10:33 A.M.: Holy racism, Bat Man! Fresh off the presses of our friends over at Angry Asian Man, someone returned a letter sent by an Asian-American-run insurance company in Westminster because they, quote, "Don't Speak Gook."

Seriously, what the fuck.

Now, the letter clearly has an address and name visible in the original photo, but I'm going to tell you guys: The address is to a P.O. box business and it's missing a suite/box number, so there's no telling if the person named returned the letter herself, or it got misplaced, and someone else sent it back and wrote the nasty note. Also, the letter was never even opened.

But still though, seriously?

Redondo Beach is a pretty nice place. What a shame, whoever wrote it.

(Thanks, Phil)
