NZ News Host Makes Fun Of Delhi Chief Minister

Submitted by: Boque 6 years ago Funny

This incident caused Paul Henry to later quit. What do you think I-A-B? Racist, or does New Zealand need to harden up?

Paul says things on national tv that ppl are thinking but generally don`t say...and they love him over here. I think he`s got guts but he`s still a doosh! lol. I`m a 3rd gen NZ born Indian that`s had to deal with guys like him my whole life and i bareIy look Indian.. personally think NZ`ers are racist.. It`s just that people new to the country don`t know this then get offended. Def gotta harden up.

man, it`s fun, not racist. what have you always got with your racial attitude ? you got a serious problem, maybe because you`re american ;) and not a real free human on earth. he is laughing about the name dickpoo, because its funny in his language, not about the person, that has in fact another name diksit. get it straight and get a therapist, but not an american one ;)

"in what way does he suggest racial inferiority?"

What did he mean when he suggested she should be called dik-in-sh*t?

Whatever you pseudo-matrue people. Sheila Dikpoo is a hilarious name. I make fun of the last name "Butt".....ITS FUNNY.

Grow down.

Although, this guy shouldn`t have been fired.

Paul Henry is hilarious. Kiwis are renowned for being non- PC anyway. He should stay.

[quote]The reason he quit wasn`t just over this [/quote]
Just for clarification`s sake, yeah it was. The Governor-General thing was what he got suspended for.

But yeah, i`m in the boat that it was an immature joke, but a joke nonetheless. PC overload!

There`s been more support for Paul Henry to stay on than those who were offended by him. He`s well known for saying what he thinks - he really doesn`t care what the person thinks. (Yes - I`m from NZ & I think he`s great!)

This was f*cking hilarious to watch. Kiwi humour is fantastic. No, New Zealand doesn`t need to harden up. We weren`t the one`s who were f*cking complaning about it being racist. India was. Everybody I know thinks Paul Henry is amazing.

Paul Henry. Just saying what everyone else is thinking.
He`s harmless, he just has a childish sense of humor and doesn`t know when to stop :)
The funniest outburst was when a lady from greenpeace was on the show and he noted that she had a moustache lmao without people like him news shows are far too tame and PC. http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=4yt9olqwIeE

Paul Henry is an idiot. he`s been doing stuff like this for years and been in trouble for calling Susan Boyle a "retard" and pointing out that a female guest had a mustache etc . The reason he quit wasn`t just over this , he had asked the prime minister on live TV to choose a new governor-general that "looked more like a new zealander" . the governor general is a new zealander , but has Fijian-Indian heritage.He`s been doing this for years , during a live show he`ll say something stupid , keep saying it despite everyone telling him to shut up then apologise later on the next days show. can`t believe it took this long to get rid of him!

Not funny, not funny at all. AND he should have known when to quit, esp. when his co-host gave him that look. If he caught it.

Can`t believe people find this funny, whether its racist or not, this man is very annoying. Might have been funny if it carried on to the next story and he had to say something like "In other news, the Prime Ministers been assassinated".

It was funny until the indian thing- then it just went from good natured mistranslation humor to relatively overt racism.

I knew an indian guy named Rahkpoo, pronounced "Rock poo." To this day I find it hilarious. People make fun of my name all the time- it`s typically funny, but wow... just wow... I believe the phrase "crossed the line," applies.

@zhdapleeblue- it`s a stereotype about Indian women: since there`s a high premium on virginity, there is a reputation for favoring ye olde third input for premarital sex.

Yes, there were comments in this clip that were not appropriate for a TV host. "dick in poo" and "makes sense, she`s Indian" were just dumb! And probably offensive to people from India.
wtf does he mean? Makes sense? Oy!

Yeah he`s pretty annoying. The funny thing is even the other host, who was trying to be politically correct pronounced her name wrong.

Err, why didn`t he just say Sorry and get on with it? Everyone around him was acting all awkward you`d think he`d have gotten the message

I think a couple of you missed the racist part. He said her name should be "dick in poo" since she`s Indian. I`d say that`s a rather racist remark.

I am an Indian and I do find the name funny, what I think people are complaining is he kept on making stereotype derogatory remarks for no reason, specially when the joke ended in in first 3 seconds , also the guy has a history of racial remarks, check his wiki page.

if my name was anything like that, I would expect it to be laughed at. Not racist at all. Loosen up your bumhole, New Zealand. (I`m now, however, saying that it`s appropriate to say on day time television, just that it isn`t at all racist and is actually quite funny)

Working in IT I speak to indians frequetly and this is by no means the funniest sounding name. I used to speak regularly to a guy whos last name was Karnatakapu. It was hard to maintain decorum.

This is by far the funniest thing on IAB to date. It`s amazing he was just able to quit. Good for him. In the US he would have been fired after the first swear word and crucified for saying "indian". Looks like um... EVERY country is from free than the US when it comes to Freedom of Speech
