Nigel Ng is a comedian and YouTuber most known for his portrayal of the stereotyped Southeast Asian uncle Uncle Roger who reacts to people’s poor attempts to prepare traditional Asian meals. Ng recently published his video, entitled Uncle Roger Review ONE PIECE Japanese Curry. Uncle Roger watches the cooking sequences in the video A Recipe Handed Down! The One Piece Sanji, the Iron Man of Curry! episode 133. Ng’s Uncle Roger alter persona is well-known for his response videos to cooking-related content and his use of the dejected sound “haiyaaa”. Ng tweeted a screenshot of the strike along with the following statement in a comment on his YouTube community page:

“Haiyaaa Uncle Roger got copyright striked and YouTube is removing my latest weejio (One Piece review) from the platform in 5 days… If you haven’t watched it yet, go watch and share it now before it’s gone” 😢

Toei Animation, the company that owns the rights to the well-known One Piece anime series, is serious about its intellectual property and promptly removed Uncle Roger’s YouTube video from the site after filing a copyright strike. Millions of people have watched the One Piece video after Ng urged followers to do so before it was deleted. Other popular Western-based YouTubers have also received copyright threats from Toei Animation as they’re quite strict with their content.
