  1. Oh my goodness me! I am hoping that Padma will do the needful!

    1. Oh, who cares?
      Must the internet police every moronic statement? Must everybody "be held to account" for trivial stupidity?

      Is this the kind of society that we want to live in?

      It isn't far from Orwellian policy, except the governance is by mob (internet) rule.

        Not the kind of society I want to live in. But maybe Padma should plead guilty.

        1. I guess Questlove apologized. Padma has been silent. The link to Questlove's FB is interesting.

          I guess they should be happy they aren't Paula.

            Padma is taking the Alex Baldwin approach.

            1. Why didn't they just say, "Damn You Auto Correct!"

              1. Racial jokes =/= racist jokes.

                1. If this was done on Saturday Night Live...would it even be a story?
