Apparently he didn't get the memo that A) Ethiopia jokes are three decades old and B)you can't say "Fried Chicken" in relation to black people.


Seems common sense to me, especially in this hyper sensitive world. So long Corny.

Inexcusable, especially given how much time they may have had to dub over it.

Even if just to be safe, because it was (at best!) in questionable taste.

Even if it's to protect a guy who (at best!) may not realize what he said.

But they let it go, and let him hang himself. And THAT is maybe most surprising.

Weird turn around for the company, particularly given how quickly they dropped Jazz and Willie Mack's pushes.

He should be gone, but so should the person who had about a month to edit it out and didn't do it.

Lagana's "some might have found it offensive" apology was half-assed, too. Own up to things and just say it was offensive.

I've kinda missed the last two episodes anyway, but nonsense like this doesn't give me much desire to go back.
