I urge all Koreans, Korean Americans, and anyone who cares about social justice to please signal-boost and share this so that Gawker and its Valleywag editors will apologize for what they did.
Please tweet and hashtag #GawkingAtRapeCulture, @Gawker, @ValleyWag and their editors @samfbiddle @max_read so that the public receives a full retraction and official apology. Stop rape culture. Stop violence against women.
Please help this go viral. Retweet. Tweet. Reblog. Whatever it takes.
