Difference is that she is ACTUALLY being racist, Conan wasn't.

People really find that racist? That amazes me. Some people need to lighten up. And why do people overreact when its a tweet? If he just came out and said it during stand up no-one would bat an eyelid. Billy Connolly on religion is much much much more edgy than that comment, and you know what, it was hilarious!

University students go into nightclubs and make fun of 9/11 victims, but seems to have gone relatively unnoticed.

Maybe on one front page. But the fact that they have been hailed as heroes is just sick, really sick. This tweet by conan o'brien is racist but the liberals will ignore it ad hail him as a hero once again. Racism is making a comeback.

Now that's a racist tweet.
Now there's someone I wouldn't like to be stuck talking to at a party.

"These decorations are nice"
"Probably made by children in sweat shops"
"This cocktail is nice"
"ALCOHOL KILLS MILLIONS OF PEOPLE EVERY YEAR"

The original tweet was funny. People are so pathetic these days, they complain about anything and everything

If he replaced Muslim with Mormon would it still be racist?

Ok.

Who hailed them as heroes? I remember them being heavily criticised for what they did, nobody sided with them.

And as unfunny as this joke is, I don't believe that Conan's tweet was racist, simply making fun of stereotypes.

Well, that's good to know, remind me never to ask you again in future

:lol: It's only "racist" because he's not Muslim.

My Muslim family and friends and l make jokes like this all the time. (For the record, I'm not Muslim.)

Why'd they let you become non-Muslim?

Dry joke. If you're going to make a joke about a 16 year old Muslim girl based on cheap, islamophobic stereotypes, make sure it's funny.

He has since deleted it.

I can't believe this guy would post something like this? I thought he was a cool liberal who wouldn't stand for such bigotry? Nazism failed, doesn't he realise it?
Typical false moral outrage. You've written it like a Daily Mail headline.

It's not racist, get over it.

Conan O Brien is a talk show host in America btw.

Conan was being worst, an Islamophobic bigot that in the wrong place at the wrong time could've had his head chopped off.
Good job Islam is a religion of peace.

Oh, wait.

That sure does sound like a nice and peaceful religion.

You might want to open a dictionary and actually look at the definition of Islamophobic.

The term "Islamophobic" is used so often that it's almost devoid of meaning. Most people (on this forum especially) do not hate Muslims, they dislike Islam. That is a very important distinction that you do not seem to understand.

Also, double standard much? You're implying that your racism is justified because Conan's "racism" was apparently worse.

So the punishment for free speech and humour is death? Very peaceful.

There are far worse, and much funnier jokes about other religions. Islam isn't immune to that and it shouldn't be.
