As my fellow Offender Anderson Le (aka the undisputed King of Karaoke) can tell you, you do not fuck with an Asian and their karaoke. Under any circumstances. Never. People have been killed for singing the wrong song—that’s how much you shouldn’t fuck with Asians and karaoke.
Well, 51-year-old American tourist Bobby Ray Carter Jr. learned that lesson the hard way while vacationing in Krabi, Thailand. While hanging out at the Little Longhorn Saloon known for its “good music, funfunfun and friendly staff,” Carter died when he was stabbed in the chest with “an iron rod.”
According to witnesses, Carter got into an altercation with members of the live karaoke band when the tourist refused to let anyone else take a turn at the mike after the band refused to play a song he requested.
Then, Carter did the other thing you shouldn’t do with Asian folks—ask for your money back. A fight broke out and the aforementioned iron rod found its new home in Carter’s chest.
Yes, this is a sad story and my sympathies go out to Carter’s family, but let’s take away the proper lesson from this (and repeat after me):
Do not fuck with Asians and their karaoke!
Just don’t do it, it’s not worth it. I know from experience, you do not want to get between a man like this…
…and his mike.
