Paul Sun-Hyung Lee is saying goodbye to “Kim’s Convenience” as only he can: by hosting a special livestream broadcast on his Bitter Asian Dude YouTube channel to commemorate the final episode of the beloved Canadian sitcom, which aired its final episode on Tuesday night.

“Join me in My Geeky Basement as I: Reflect upon my 10-year journey of playing Appa in ‘Kim’s Convenience’ on both stage and screen. Give you my thoughts on the final episode. Talk about what the fans of the show have meant to me. Chat with some OG Kimbits. Give away some cool swag and signed KC memorabilia!” Lee wrote in the caption for the livestream (which has completed but can be viewed above).

He kicked things off, appropriately enough, in character as Kim family patriarch Appa to welcome viewers to his “geeky basement,” which Appa described as being “more like a sad man toy hoard,” … Read more

Today the Centers for Disease Control and the Food & Drug Administration has recommended a pause in the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, citing concerning new studies which may link the vaccine to a rise in blood clots.

Until recently, though, Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine had been the preferred vaccine delivered to African American communities, according to multiple reports.

MTO News learned that health care providers viewed the J&J’s shot as a blessing, since it can be stored at refrigerator temperatures for months and takes just one dose — unlike Pfizer’s and Moderna’s.

The J&J vaccine was seen by health care providers as an important tool in getting lifesaving vaccines to hard-to-reach places that may not have reliable refrigeration, such as tribal lands, poorer neighborhoods as well as rural and border communities, officials told CNBC.

Hank Azaria is speaking out about the immense backlash he faced due to his former role voicing Apu on “The Simpsons”.

Controversy has surrounded the long-running character since the release of comedian Hari Kondabolu’s 2018 documentary “The Problem With Apu”, which explored the negative impact from the stereotypes it perpetuates, including the over-the-top Indian accent used by Azaria.

Minnesota broke out in riots last night, after police shot and killed an unarmed Black man. According to an eyewitness on the scene, MTO News learned that police opened fire on the young man after they saw an air freshener in his car hanging from the rearview mirror.

The alleged murder caused hundreds of people to take to the streets in protest on Sunday night.

The shooting happened Sunday afternoon in Brooklyn Center, a Minneapolis suburb of about 30,000 people. Brooklyn Center is about 10 miles from where former police officer Derek Chauvin is on trial for the killing of another Black man, George Floyd.

Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz identified the man killed in Sunday’s incident as Daunte Wright.

“Gwen and I are praying for Daunte Wright’s family as our state mourns another life of a Black man taken by law enforcement,” Walz said via a tweet.
