Just a few days after Philadelphia Public Record publisher Jimmy Tayoun Sr. shrugged off the Asian slurs that appeared in last week’s edition of his newspaper, chalking them up to a “proofreading error,” Tayoun has terminated the responsible employee.

In the August 21st edition of the free weekly tabloid, Asians seen in a photograph with City Councilman Mark Squilla were captioned as “Chinky Winky,” “Dinky Doo,” and “Me Too.”
