  Me either, I had to look it up.

1. zipperhead  
 
A derogatory term used in reference to people of Asian descent.

It is said to have been coined during the Korean war by frontline troops whom had run over enemy troops in jeeps.

The soldiers claimed that the tire tracks from the jeeps left a pattern resembling that of a closed zipper along the corpse.

There are multiple proposed origins, but the most commonly accepted is that it if enemy Asian soldiers were shot in the head with high-powered weapons, their heads would split as if they had been "unzipped".

 If Miguel Torres got fired for a rape van joke, this is grounds for termination 100%.

Dana the hypocrite strikes again.

  Yes. Much like many of Clint's ramblings....I dismissed it as #Eastwooding.

Someone screen cap it quickly! :)

Twitter is blocked at my work and my screenshot button is broken on my iphone so I had to write it out (lol)

I could care less how a person conducts themselves, but I found it funny that he said a racial slur considering he has fired people for less offensive twitter comments and is the president of an international company.

Edit: To be fair, I didn't know of this particular slur until I watched Gran Torino a few years back.
