I tried to find his exact quote but can't find the key words on a Google search. I did, however, find lots of crap people had to deal with in 2009, like the troll who claimed that Sulu knowing how to handle himself in hand-to-hand combat is a racist stereotype that would have Roddenberry rolling in his grave.
There's nothing in it about roto-Roddenberry, but perhaps you were remembering this little gem:
More practical to use a katana? So the marine of today should forego their closet quarter fire training for fencing lessons? Just because Sulu is known for fencing, does not mean all Asians are kungfu fighting. Just because John Cho looks Japanese, does not mean he carries a katana. For Abrams to even employ such stereotypical clichés, its borderline racism.

will be enormous fun, because we'll all get really smashed and wreck something."
