Her zingy and controversial one-liners include sentences like, “It’s really dark in here. So if there are any black people in the audience, smile for me,” and “I hate fat people, they just take up too much space.”
In the controversial video, Esther says, “As someone who’s been beaten by Asian men, I played that video over and over again and jerked off a million times.” She even went as far as to joke that David Dao had actually dramatized the incident and caused his injuries
