Aziz Ansari was one of many standup comedians to perform at the Comedy Central Roast of James Franco last weekend. But the jokes made at Ansari's expense had a different edge: a racist one to be exact.
Ansari faced plenty of tired and lazy jokes throughout the night, regarding his Indian heritage. So when it was finally his turn to speak, he grabbed the bull by its horns by saying, "I think it's so cool that some of you guys were able to travel back in time to 1995 for those Indian jokes you did...Those stereotypes are so outdated, my god. There's more Indian dudes doing sitcoms than there are running 7/11s. We are straight-up snatching roles from white actors."
He also addressed the night's rampant homophobia, saying, "So many gay jokes about Franco! Apparently, if you're clean and mildly cultured, you're super gay now."
