From the Wrestling Observer Smackdown recap (liveaudiowrestling.com):

"This stereotypical Mexican dude brings a big white bag to the dressing room in the back. Big Show stops him, and takes the bag to find a ton of burritos. [...] This was like Saturday Night Live funny, except it was totally unintentional. Or it was, and the WWE creative just doesn't have high regard for the latino community, which wouldn't surprise me either. [...] Whoever is writing this stuff (Vince?) should be totally fired because they're insulting latinos way more than they should with stupid skits, and with Smackdown being a top rated show among the latino community, that doesn't really make a whole lot of sense."

And, six sentences later:

"Eddie showed up and tells Big Show that he put something in the burritos to give Show the runs. You'd figure with Mexican food he wouldn't have to add anything to it to give someone the runs."

I just don't feel like I'm quite getting where this guy is coming from, sometimes.

Classic double standard. If it's someone you don't like or that it's currently "in" to bash, then "stereotypes are hurtful and unfair!" but if it's YOU "it's funny 'cause it's true!"

Sad thing is, lots of people don't even pick up on that stuff.

Hey, I did. I was considering posting it here, but then I remembered my OTHER bout of Wall-bashing and didn't want to look OBSESSED or anything, so....yeah.

WALL IS A TOOL WALL IS A TOOL

Sorry.

I don't think that whoever wrote that comment (and I agree with TCF that it wasn't Meltzer that wrote it, but whoever sent the spoilers in that added the comments although the author isn't the point here) meant it in the way you took it.
