    I thought it was about pushing the "actor" charge too far.

    Me, no. But the accusation has been made that his "brownface" appearance is racist.

    After laughing my ass off with Big Bang Theory for several years, the only thing I found offensive by the PopChips ad was the fact Big Bang Theory didn't get credit for the character.

    If Raj on Big Bang Theory isn't a racist stereotype, then neither is this Raj. People are just pissed it's a white guy in make up, which is racist on their part.
