Tiger Mom Amy Chua Picks A Fight With Emmy Winner Alan Yang

HOLLYWOOD, California (The Adobo Chronicles, Los Angeles Bureau) – In accepting the Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for the ‘Master of None’ episode ‘Parents,’ writer Alan Yang urged Asian parents to give their kids cameras instead of violins. That didn’t sit well with ‘Tiger Mom’ Amy Chua. She demanded an apology from Yang.

Chua is the author of the controversial book, ‘Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother,’ in which she narrates her insistence on piano and violin lessons for her two daughters. For years, Chua fought pitched battles with her kids about practicing — putting Lulu, age 3, outside in the cold because she wouldn’t take instruction. She also threatened to burn her kids’ stuffed animals, and denying dinner until a piece was perfected.

“Who is to say that the camera makes one a better person than the violin,” Chua said.

The moral of the story: Hollywood can’t pick a fight with the Tiger mom. It’s a losing proposition.
