Umm, this is NOT what we were expecting from TLC.

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??
