Beauty and Eyes of Beholder

Martin Freeman called Lucy Liu a dog on an interview, and apparently, that offended quite a few people. It was obviously a joke, since she is a beauty in the opinion of most people in the US and the UK, I think. However, someone really should have sent Martin Freeman a memo telling him that a lot of (Chinese) people actually think her ugly. And dog, in Chinese culture references, doesn't have the same fondness as implied in western (and here I am generalizing) culture. Basically, calling a someone dog is an insult to Chinese.

Ah, perspectives and everything misconmmunicating.

eta, the new version of posting ate my original post. sticking to old version until that bug is fixed.
