They seriously think Australia is just a place of desert plains - one of the articles referred to Australia as "kangaroo land".Nice to see Joy Behar is still as ignorant as ever. She said "The Aborigines, they don't treat them very well."
That woman obviously knows absolutely nothing about human rights in modern day Australia...
It wouldn't surprise me if she didn't know who the current prime minister is, or what the capital city of Australia is.
Harry Hypocrite spoke his mind and Darryl apologised, now way the issue was big enough to go global and dominate the news for 3 days with people in other countries claiming the whole of Australia to be racist when the intentions were light hearted and not meant to be racist in the first place.5) Shame on anyone who thinks this is a storm in a teacup. What society do we live in when this type of behaviour is either excused or tolerated. How ignorant must we be to not know that 'blackface' is a vile act and the reminder of a bygone era where racism was just allowed, it was indoctrined into society.
Can't say verbatim, but the gist of it was, the other three panelists were bagging it & Australia as a whole, bringing our treatment of Aboriginals into it. Whoopi butted in & said that we have a different culture & way of looking at things & she doubted it had racist overtones, just a comedic tribute to the Jackson Five & was OK.Mant, what did she say

It's a pity you don't have a video link to the next bit of that segment, that was on CH7 news, showed where she defended Australia & the act as non racist.
Surely for an individual or an act to be called racist there must be some underlying intent.
What was the intent of the red faces performance?
I thought their intent was to mock someone who had changed their appearance significantly over the years, not to mock the colour of black people.
Yep, very stupid. For the people that missed both episodes and want to see them, they expect them to watch it all in one go?How f*n stupid.... GO are showing both shows back to back Saturday night. Thats 6 hours of Hey Hey Have they lost the plot
Wait a week show one EP then in two weeks show the other. Fair dinkum they are clowns
That is a really, really dumb comment to make. I'm not even into a lot of this music but it's pretty obvious that not all rap is degrading or uses offensive language.How about the fact that the USA is the home of rap music which to me is offensive, degrading to women, and uses 'racist' language.
