Eddie Murphy portrayed an Italian American character in "Vampire in Brooklyn" and a Jewish old man in "Coming to America". Hhhhaaaa-hhhAAAA!

Funny, no?

I thought so, and apparently, as least the latter, turned out to be a blockbuster for Eddie!

Everyone had a good laugh, no Anti Defamation suits...no controversy.

Fast forward to today.

Ashton Kutcher, who at times can be funny...I say "at times"...does a commercial for
Popchips, and the accusation, according to this, is that the brand traffics in racial stereotypes.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a spokesperson for the company released a statement hitting back at accusations that the commercial was offensive.

"The new popchips worldwide dating video and ad campaign featuring four characters was created to provoke a few laughs and was never intended to stereotype or offend anyone," the spokesperson said. "At popchips we embrace all types of shapes, flavors and colors, and appreciate all snackers, no matter their race or ethnicity. We hope people can enjoy this in the spirit it was intended."

"A good result!"

What the hell is that?"

A good result would be to shut the hell up and laugh along with everyone else!

“Once we can’t laugh at ourselves anymore, we really have nothing left,” says Trevelise. “Laughter’s the release. The way you can see a problem, a mistake, is to step back and look at it.”

Or as my grandmother would say: "Sta vennen' o' finn' do' mund"

The world is coming to an end!
