    He was exploiting loads of different stereotypes and I doubt it was intended to be racist. I can see why people might think so but otherwise it's probably just an overeaction from the PC brigade.

    Anyone who thinks this is racist doesn't know the meaning of the word racist.

    Racism is the belief that one race is superior to another, or prejudice purely based on someone's race.

    Racial stereotyping isn't racist, unless it is like saying all black people are criminals (of course they are not) or something of a similar nature.

    Pretending to be a flamboyant Bollywood directo is not racist.

    No. I don't understand how people are perfectly alright to make fun of Europeans (e.g. Germans, the French, even Eastern Europeans (Best example is in 'Lead Balloon')), but as soon as the person isn't white, it's wrong and off-limits.

    Wow, he's just playing different people. Why does it matter if he's a different race?

    No, just unfunny, which isn't surprising with Ashton Kutcher.
