The post showed team members pulling their eyes back in a slanted formation, while others are shown bowing. The group took the offensive photo below in celebration of a trip they were taking to Japan.  Glamour Brasil issued the apology “to the Asian community and every follower who has been offended by the publication in our Instagram account,” in addition to removing the post. “Glamour Brazil’s team regrets the incident,” the statement sent to The Huffington Post read. “It does not match the magazine’s position or opinions.” However, several members of the Asian community, including Hudson Yang of sitcom “Fresh Off The Boat”  and popular blogger Ranier Maningding , clapped back on social media, accusing Glamour Brasil of racism. What the heck @GlamourBR this is racist 😡 pic.twitter.com/8jYB7Ybjub — Hudson David Yang (@HudsonDYang) November 6, 2016 What's up, @GlamourBR @glamourmag ? Anyone wanna explain why your team is filled with racist assholes? pic.twitter.com/UnifbcuMF0 — The Official LLAG (@theLLAG) November 4, 2016 Also @GlamourBR ur apology sucks. Don't say "sorry to ppl we offended" OWN that shit. Try "we're ignorant & now trying 2 educate ourselves" — DISGRASIAN™ (@disgrasian) November 7, 2016 How a publishing force like @CondeNast allows an unrelenting racist like @monicagsalgado to stay in power is problematic. @GlamourBR — David Yi (@seoulcialite) November 7, 2016 The Japanese welcome @GlamourBR into their country and this is how the idiot staff repays them. https://t.co/fdttolcSEZ — teresa lo (@teresalo_tweets) November 5, 2016 Brazil has the largest  Japanese population outside of Japan, but this isn’t the first time casual racism has cropped up there. The Brazilian soccer team  Santos FC came under fire years ago for posing with “slit-eyes” while promoting the 2011 FIFA Club World Cup in Japan.  Asian culture is often caricatured in Brazil, with insensitive Fu Manchu-like depictions still deemed as acceptable,  The Associated Press points out. And Japanese-Brazilians can be made to feel like they’re not really part of Brazilian culture, Jeffrey Lesser, an Emory University historian, told the AP. “A black person in Brazil is called a black Brazilian but a Japanese-Brazilian is called a Japones,” he said. “There is always a separation, the assumption that they like sushi, not feijoada.”  More: Asian Voices Asian Americans Glamour Brasil Suggest a correction Comments Close SUBSCRIBE AND FOLLOW Get top stories and blog posts emailed to me each day.
