Was Howie Mandel Being Racist On America's Got Talent?

| Filed under: Howard SternHowie MandelReality TV

The Internets crashed down on Howie Mandel after his off-color “happy endings” joke on AGT … but we wonder if it's really fair.

After comedian Mark Ofuji finished his bit, many viewers felt Howie's joke gave credence to an unfair Asian-American stereotype!

Others contend the judge’s joke — while tasteless — had more to do with the contestant’s day job than his race!

Ch-Ch-Check out the video (above) and feel free to make the call yourself!

About one thing, however, there can be no controversy.

Mizter Ofuji is not funny. Not one bit.

We respect the courage it takes to do an awful Gilbert Gottfried impersonation on live network television and the pluck it requires to smile in the face of detractors but, wow, you should strongly consider not quitting your day job.

Did Howie’s joke offend you?

R U surprised Howard Stern isn’t the one rocking the boat??

    Howie didn't say it because the guy was Asian-American; he said it because the guy is a Massage Therapist…get it, happy endings? THAT IS ALL HE MEANT!!!

    Again, if he's not talking to YOU, you have no business being offended.

    Can you imagine if somebody else suddenly got to scrutinize how you speak to your friends for a few days? It's nobody's freakin' business!

    I am sick and tired of people analyzing over analyzing 5-10 second snippets out of peoples conversations. We're all adults. Don't we have more important things to do?

    The INTERNETS crashed? Just how many internets crashed, Perez? I bet it was the internet that Al Gore invented that crashed. This explains everything.

    This is what liberals are doing. Banning free speech under the guise its a "hate speech"

    People are just too uptight and overly politically correct these days. You can't even breath without offending someone. The worst part is, people are stupid and don't even understand that its not racist. He was making fun of his profession..Not because of his ethnicity. Why are people so dumb?
