2 Broke Girls slammed for Aboriginal joke

The popular American comedy show was called out by Aussie viewers for the offensive remark, which occurred during the first five minutes into the season 4 episode titled “And the Fun Factory”.

In the scene a male character reveals that he has been flirting with an Australian girl online and says: “She’s part Aboriginal, but she has a great personality!”

Unhappy viewers took to social media, with former Nine personality and The Block contestant Chantelle Ford just one of the many to voice her disgust.

“They were inferring that Aboriginal means inferior. The other characters laughed like it was the funniest thing they had ever heard.”


Aborigines are generally very "disadvantaged" so the joke was just a bit of realism.

The perpetually offended are offended again on someone else's behalf. No surprise in that.
