Dude Unwittingly Fuels A Stereotype After Buying A Craft Brewery Shirt

It's always best to check and double check all of your items when shopping, just to make sure you didn't pick up the wrong thing, something I've done multiple times. That's one lesson Reddit user HoustonUA6 learned in quite possibly the funniest way one could.

According to the Reddit page, HoustonUA6 was out shopping when he saw a shirt that he liked. Evidently, he saw the "Red" and the "White" part and assumed the third word was "Blue." Without unfolding the shirt and getting a visual confirmation, he grabbed his size and headed out. It was only when he got home that he had realized the hilarious mistake he made.

Instead of buying a shirt that said "Red White + Blue," he bought a shirt praising American craft breweries that read, "Red White + Brew."

For those who don't know, there is a stereotype that purports that Asian people commonly confuse the pronunciations for the letters "l" and "r." HoustonUA6 already knows about this stereotype, but that didn't stop him from still having fun with his little blunder.

"You know how when you buy a shirt and it's typically folded? I should have unfolded it. Being Asian does not herp,' said HoustonUA6.

All things considered, many Redditors agreed that he was lucky the shirt just said "Brew," as it could have said much worse things.

One user surmised that it could have said, "RED WHITE + FUCK YOU," while another thought that, "RED WHITE + HITLER DID NOTHING WRONG,' would be worse still. Somehow, both users were right.
