Foreign tourist bashed for offensive Tiktok video subtitles about Vietnam

April 03, 2024

A foreign tourist is facing criticism because the subtitles in his TikTok videos were perceived to be mistranslated, potentially portraying Vietnam negatively to international viewers. “This American guy went to Vietnam but insulted Vietnamese people and Vietnamese food,” Jessica spoke in English in her video shared on TikTok and Instagram. In one of his most viral videos about Vietnam, the tourist was stopped by local traffic policemen to check his international license. However, he inaccurately subtitled what the officers said in the video, causing discrepancies between the subtitles and the actual dialogue. “Why do you have to paint such a bad picture of Vietnamese?” Jessica said.
