Uploading a racist video rant to Facebook about "why you'd hate to be an Asian" is probably the stupidest, most redneck thing you could possibly do, right? That's what Indiana-based "rapper and entertainer" Sam Hendrickson did. The video quickly went viral, causing quite the controversy. I'm not sure what he was thinking when he uploaded it, but obviously it's a pathetic attempt to get lame laughs. Plus, dude... sushi is freakin' amazing.
Although he's wearing a Notre Dame shirt in the video, Hendrickson is allegedly an Indiana University student. Sorry this guy had to propel the Fighting Irish douche stereotype, Notre Dame fans.

Since I was raised this way I urge you to NOT CONTACT HIM. It is embarrassing enough for him now, there is no reason to riddle him with threats.
He blasted this tweet out when he initially uploaded the video:
I think it'd suck to be asian. Here's why: 1. They are destined to be real short.2. They look pretty much the... fb.me/SGQt6d0L— Sam Hendrickson (@samHNDRXN) March 4, 2013
Yesterday, he responded:
