According to the Independent, there were two versions of the former mayor's interview posted to YouTube, but the extended version which captured his racist mannerism was uploaded by mistake.

Rudy Giuliani mocked Asians by adopting a faux Chinese accent and performing a pretend bow in a video clip that was accidentally published on his YouTube channel. "Ah, get me Jayne Zirkle", he said multiple times while using the accent, referring to Jayne Zirkle, a Trump supporter.

The Daily Beast first reported the remarks, which came at the end of a video in which Giuliani interviewed the former White House press secretary Sean Spicer for the podcast "Common Sense".

After a few moments of small talk with an assistant who appears to be Jayne Zirkle, an animated Giuliani started affecting a stereotypical Chinese accent while telling Zirkle that she's 'going to be the most famous model in China'.

He repeats "Jayne Zirkle, Jayne Zirkle, Jayne Zirkle, ha ha hoo", and adding a bow, before he speaks to another person off camera and the recording ends.

Editors apparently kept rolling minutes after the interview ended and captured the former NY mayor mocking Asians. In October of past year, he butt-dialed NBC News reporter Rich Shapiro and left a message in which he complained about his cash flow problems. A little more than two weeks later, he accidentally called another reporter and left a voicemail again. In this instance, he was heard saying he had become a target of public attacks for criticizing a powerful Democrat figure.
