A candidate for the Harris County Commissioners Court in Texas has apologized to her Asian American opponent and the larger Asian American community after releasing an ad that contained a doctored image of her rival.

“With anti-Asian hate rising, Briones should know better than to redraw my eyes and face to suit her campaign,” Chou said.
