    here are some netizen comments :

    racism isnt cute nor a trend


    how is that racism?


    the “fox eye” is trying to make your eyes look like asian eyes. when racist people mock asians, they pull back their eyes, like shes doing at the beginning of the video. shes even saying the “lifted look” its literally just trying to make your eyes look asian


    how is making ur eyes look asian racism? people are doing that just for their own enjoyment, and makeup has nothing to do with people that mock asians :/


    They aren’t making their eyes look Asian . It’s literally called foxy eyes trend lmao


    The look itself is cool but the gesture is kind of unnecessary and is a lot like the gesture used to mock Asians. Also why do Asians get mocked for their eyes but the moment a non-Asian person does it it’s “cute”?


    The makeup itself isn’t racist. Asians please correct me if I am wrong. But to actually physically pose and pull your eyes back is extremely racist and is mocking Asians. You have no right to say it’s nit racist when you haven’t been mocked for it your whole life. The fox eye pose is wrong. Period.


    CLEARING THINGS UP. THE MAKEUP ITSELF HAS NO PROBLEM. BUT THE POSE Y’ALL ARE DOING BY PULLING THE EYES BACK IS SOMETHING VERY WRONG.


    y'all can't if it's racist of not unless you've been through it before. All I know is that I've been mocked, and it's rly not cool...


    Honestly all of this makes me feel really bad tho. I really liked the makeup but now seeing how they are kinda using it to mock Asians make me not even want to wear my makeup like that anymore. Gosh.


    It’s not that’s she is making fun of anyone, yes she is just posing but the pose itself is what gives Asian people somewhat of a ptsd but not real ptsd but just memories of when they were made fun of by that gesture.





    and people are still doing it likes its cute smh.......

  • Makes me wonder if people know what fox eyes actually look like hence the name...


    Although I find it weird to automatically relate somethings to being racist though without context.

  • Just to Piggy Back off xWhisperx I honestly don't see how it's considered an act of racism towards asians

    The way they move their eyes is pretty similar to this...I Personally don't feel it's anything towards Asians.

    I get that but the gesture is also reflecting the shape of the fox eyes so i don't really see how it's controversial to asians when the name implies what they are going for and as i showed you there the fox eyes are like that as well...so the gesture is also trying to recreate that look I just don't see it as for lack of a better word attack/diss towards asians...they literally are recreating the eye shape of a fox.

  • The fox-eye trend actually was inspired by asian eye shape according to the surgeon who developed it. I see why some asians are apprehensive about the trend.

    I literally was trying to find that!!

    It was legit made to mimic the same upturned feature that Asians have

    It’s not racist in my opinion, because there are many people with eyes like that naturally who aren’t Asian - it’s actually pretty common...

    Asian eyes most the time have the slanted upturned feature and that’s what is attractive, to try and emulate that is not a crime or racist in my opinion

    Actually I want to get the fox eye for myself

    My eyes are “Asian” but they don’t go upwards so I wanna do it (I’m not Asian - but I’m always confused for being Chinese/Japanese lol might take an ancestor test but anyways I digress.)

  • I also think it is not racist dw, its just some asians dont like the gesture of pulling the corners of the eyes to mimic the "fox-eye".


    It's so cool that you have that kind of eyes, i am asian but my eyes are more like almond shaped so yeah im kinda jealous ;(

  • it's called fox eyes, not asian eyes. not all asians have slanted eyes, after all.


    it's just a trend, and some women genuinely look better with trends and then adopt them as a daily look through makeup or even surgery.


    it's a nice idea, to think many people are aware of racism and actively try to avoid it. ultimately, it's up to each person to decide where their boundaries for hyper awareness and concern can have a happy medium.

  • ...? I thought this thread is about f(x)..

  • As far as I can tell this isn’t racism. Neither the makeup or pose. That gesture can be used to mock asians but this isn’t one of those cases. Claiming this is racism is like saying dipping your head in a black paint jar to get a spooky look for Halloween is black face. Simply stretching out your eye a little to mimic a fox is not racism against Asians or mocking them in any way.

  • I also think it is not racist dw, its just some asians dont like the gesture of pulling the corners of the eyes to mimic the "fox-eye".


    It's so cool that you have that kind of eyes, i am asian but my eyes are more like almond shaped so yeah im kinda jealous ;(

    Yeahhhh honestly I love Asian eyes, so I can’t even blame people for wanting to achieve that look!! If anything it will shut down all the people who think pulling their eyes being racist is funny when actually it’s an attractive feature so LOOOOOL


    Yeah mine are like almond shape, but my eyelid is like tinyyy double lidded Asian eye?? If that makes any sense

    And when I smile my eyes literally have that Asian eye smile :D love it

    Never knew why some people made fun out of it :| it’s literally so cute

    But yeh I want mine to go more up too!!!

  • I don't find this racist at all. How's it racist? It's really just a look. Part of makeup is to change your appearance in an interesting way. This is part of it. It's just like how people would do contouring to their faces to give themselves a different look. I'm not sure if that's still a popular thing to do in makeup these days, but that's just an example I thought of.
