The New York Times also released a statement Thursday morning, painting Sarah Jeong as the victim.
“Her journalism and the fact that she is a young Asian woman have made her the subject of frequent online harassment. For a period of time she responded to that harassment by imitating the rhetoric of her harassers,” The NY Times said in a PR statement.
