What The Actual F**k???

Baker Skateboards has a lot of explainin' to do.

They're being accused or being total racists after releasing a new T-shirt that reads "Gooks of Hazzard" with the tagline "Good Orr Boys" above a cartoon of two Asian characters - one of them being pro-skater Don "The Nuge" Nguyen, who apparently approves of the shirt.

The company, which is owned by skating legend Andrew Reynolds, is now under fire as they're being accused of putting "racism for sale" on their website.

Naturally, the Asian American Justice Center completely disapproves, saying:

"[It's] unacceptable for Baker Skateboards to create a depiction of Asian Americans which uses racial slurs and perpetuates racist stereotypes.

Baker Skateboards, and the outlets that sell this shirt, should be aware that use of the term 'gook' on their apparel is offensive and quite simply amounts to racism for sale. No one should seek to profit from racism."

And, we agree! They have to know how offensive this is, right? RIGHT???
