Moskowitz takes down post that invoked ethnic stereotype about Asians

Two Korean American Democratic colleagues spoke out after he removed the off-color effort to mock Governor. Kristi Noem’s contentious dog-killing story.

Rep. Jared Moskowitz aimed at Kristi Noem, but ended in hitting himself.

Moskowitz published on X Monday regarding the CBS talk with South Dakota GOP governor, who is under national scrutiny over forthcoming memoirs that discuss her dog’s death and falsely claims that she had a meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. The Florida Democrat wrote about Noem: “Why am I getting the feeling that she wanted to eat dog with Kim Jong Un?”

The tweet, while making reference to Noem’s controversial admission of shooting the dog she owned Cricket dead it also invokes an cultural stereotype about Asian Americans.

“It was an ode to Kristi Noem as well as the leader of North Korea — 2 people and no one else. I removed the post because I did not want it to be misinterpreted or offended by the larger community. I am against stereotypes and would never wish to be a part of those stereotypes.” Moskowitz told POLITICO in an announcement.

His post was deleted and prompted one reaction from the House’s just two Korean American Democrats.

“While we appreciate our colleague standing up to GOP extremism, we cannot perpetuate harmful stereotypes in the process,” Reps. Andy Kim (D-N.J.) and Marilyn Strickland (D-Wash.) released their statement. “We thank Rep. Moskowitz for apologizing and taking down his tweet.”

It’s not the first time Moskowitz was forced to take back from posting memes and gibes that slam Republicans and others who criticize him.

Then, in March of this year, the actor wrote on X about Biden’s famous facial expression after he met Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) sporting the MAGA cap at the House floor during the State of the Union. He posted it alongside an image of actress Sydney Sweeney, making a visual connection that appeared to refer to the body of Sweeney in the context of International Women’s Day — and then deleted the post.
