Falynn Guobadia Claims LaToya Ali Called Her A Racial Slur!

During a recent interview, Falynn Guobadia opened up about her ongoing feud with Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star LaToya Ali.

Guobadia, who is of mixed heritage as her mother is from Thailand and her father is from Cape Verde, looked back at her fight with Ali during her Halloween party, which was shown on the Bravo hit reality series.

While she claims that the episode that aired was pretty accurate, with the exception of some scenes being cut from the episode. Falynn claims that there was a particular scene that was removed when she alleges that Ali called her an Asian racial slur.

Guobadia said that Ali allegedly referred to her as “ching chong.”

“It’s all very real,” Falynn told The Jasmine Brand. Speaking on how their dynamic has played out in the season so far Falynn said, “From what you all saw, mostly, that is exactly how it had happened. From the very first moment I was introduced to everyone and I met everybody at Porsha’s Black Lives Matter event, I sat down and that’s what she threw at me,” she said of LaToya’s initial behavior, according to Madame Noire.

“And then fast forward to — I mean we had a couple of incidents in between,” Falynn noted, “but then fast forward to my Halloween party. That was exactly what you guys saw. The only thing you did not see was when she called me ‘ching chong’ on multiple occasions. And I think someone told me recently that she went on [Instagram] Live stating that wasn’t true but you know — everyone heard it, all the cast members, everyone was there.”

“She did actually call me ching chong,” Falynn later added in the interview. “And that’s actually what made me react in the way I did.” Discussing how she felt LaToya’s usage of the slur was just another way of disrespecting her in her own home and her family, she continued, “Because you’re not going to call me — you’re not going to talk to me like that. You know, all of my children are Asian as well. You’re not going to talk to me like that in my home — you’re already disrespectful, and I let it slide a few times. I don’t know of any woman who would have been put in my position [and] would have let that down. So yeah, it’s all very real.” 

“I don’t choose violence,” Falynn clarified with a smile and slight laugh before the end of the video, “but you’re not gonna sit here and think that you can punk me either. That’s what’s not gonna happen.”

As per NPR, the phrase “ching chong” has been “hurled as an insult at Asian folks in the U.S. [stretching] back all the way to the 19th Century.” As the outlet explained, its usage in song, texts, and even children’s nursery rhymes all share the term’s deeper roots which are embedded in anti-Asian and “yellow-peril” sentiments that plagued the 1800s.
