Kono Kicks Five-0 Ass

"Hawaii Five-0" stars Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park have left the CBS show after the network refused to pay them as much as their white costars, Variety reports.

Sources told the outlet that Kim and Park were seeking salaries equal to those of stars Alex O'Loughlin and Scott Caan, but they were unable to reach a deal with the show's producer, CBS Television Studios.
As Instapudnit asks, Why are CBS and Hollywood such a hot beds of racism and exploitation?

CBS's final offer to the two actors was reportedly "10-15% lower" than the salaries of their two white costars.

A representative for the network told Variety in a statement: "We are so appreciative of Daniel and Grace's enormous talents, professional excellence, and the aloha spirit they brought to each and every one of our 168 episodes. They've helped us build an exciting new Hawaii Five-0, and we wish them all the best and much success in their next chapters. Mahalo and a hui hou."
I just love it when the 98 lb Kono kicks the butt of some 250 lb ex-SEAL. She was a pretty nice Cylon, too. Well, there goes my last reason for watching Hawaii Five-0. Wombat-socho chimes in with "Rule 5 Sunday: (Snap-On) Tool Time."


  1. Again, we seem to be on the same wave length

    This huge issue has Grace Park leading some Hawaiian tangents -

  2. Grace Park should make more than Tom Cruise.
