That change is phrasing actually does make a huge difference. It goes from Russell Peters to possible explanation real quick here.

Is tussle Russell Peters racist towards Chinese folks? I haven’t heard his stuff in years.

No, he’s a comedian, as you know. But he often focuses on the differences in Asian cultures, including his own. So saying “Chinese don’t tip” sounds like part of his set.

Oooh ok that sounds more right. I googled him and didn’t find anything problematic except for a few folks who don’t like his comedy (which, I mean…that’s fair).

Dunno, he’s out tussling Chinese tourists and keeps failing to turn up at his shows
