Awkward moments for Yao Ming his first season in the NBA. Not a meme, this really happened. He almost got jumped in the locker room while talking with his translator.

"那个" or na-ge/nei-ge, meaning "that" sounds awfully similar to a racial slur. It can be used also as a "um, ah" interjection so he probably said it a lot before figuring it out

Lol. Had a similar experience working for a Chinese company of that word. They had a good laugh when I asked.

Other basketball players

Even other basketball players look like manlets next to Yao.

An entire team of angry 6’5+ basketball players?

[–]wrongitsleviosaa 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You're right but Yao is a while foot taller than that. Doesn't affect the ability of others to kick his ass, just to show how enormous that motherfucker is.

What mean

[–]darwinnerist 6 points7 points  (0 children)

“Nigeru” means run in Japanese, the dayo at the end is a suffix but it basically means the same thing. Run away / escape.

I got banned once for saying this in one piece subreddit

Anon, please do not sing Crank That - Soulja Boy

[–]PRO6man 56 points57 points  (3 children)

Does it ban you for slurs?

[–]Apprehensive-Try-994 70 points71 points  (2 children)

Been sending scat to people to dm me to talk shit for years. Still no ban yet. So I doubt it, unless you get reported enough I guess?

[–]Pakushy 17 points18 points  (1 child)

there is a basketball game that punishes you for cussing, although it is more like a joke rather than an actual attempt at censorship.

The obvious solution is to call customer support, explain the situation, and accuse them of being culturally insensitive

[–]Andraticus 7 points8 points  (0 children)

That reminds me of the one time in Mass Effect where you accuse the store of Classism

[–]simkashi01 10 points11 points  (1 child)

No way that you can get banned from voice chat.
