Indian Comedian Explains Why Ashton Kutcher’s Popchips Commercial Was So Offensive

Ashton Kutcher and Popchips have learned a hard lesson recently — brown face isn’t cool. Like, ever.

The company has pulled a silly viral video from the internet thanks to a whole lot of outrage over Kutcher’s impersonation of a Bollywood producer named Raj.

Here to explain why the video was so offensive is indian comedian and actor Hasan Minhaj. According to him, the worst part wasn’t even the make-up or his terrible accent, but the fact that his references made no sense so he wasn’t “even being racist correctly.”

Ha! Watch his explicit argument (above) and let us know if U agree with him (below)!
