similar to “blackfish” or “blackface”, yellowfishing or “yellowface” is attempting to look asian, if you aren’t asian. this may consist but is not limited to: aritificially enlarging the eyes, making the nose smaller (plastic surgery), and pulling / taping back the eyes to make them slimmer / wider.
follower: “omg are you asian?”
instagrammer: “no, haha im *insert race*! thank you though!”
follower (later, conversation with a friend): oh, you know *instagrammer*? yeah, they’re a yellowfish. they arent actuallt asian.”
