The first episode of Eddie Huang’s new Vice series, “Fresh Off the Boat,” appears to have already been pulled from YouTube. We’re not sure if that’s because Vice put the kabosh on it, or because the PETA massive came out in the comments to decry one scene depicting a rather grisly rabbit slaughter by an Oakland biker gang.
Of course, we all knew Huang’s show wasn’t going to pussy-foot around. Whether it breaks new ground is yet to be seen, but from the looks of part one, he’s definitely not afraid to take chances. Like his celeb buddy Anthony Bourdain, Huang has a penchant for the fringes of society. With the Vice crew by his side, we’re pretty confident he’ll get into some weird shit.
Watch part one over at Vice now.
