Uh oh! TV viewers seem to be outraged after the CBS sitcom, which likes to push boundaries, aired a super offensive joke about native Australians. See what Twitter users are saying about the ‘racial slur’ that aired on the Feb. 18 episode of ‘Two Broke Girls.’
The writers of Two Broke Girls have some explaining to do! TV viewers are more than peeved about a racial slur that was used on the Feb. 18 episode of the CBS sitcom. Immediately after witnessing the joke, Twitter users banded together and took aim at the series, saying it’s “racist” and “crossed the line.” Should the network apologize?
‘Two Broke Girls’ Racial Slur –Aboriginal Australian Joke Offends TV Viewers
On the Feb. 18 episode, one of the regular characters — Han — who happens to be a Korean immigrant and the diner owner said, “I’m in a casual flirtation with a woman in Australia. She’s part Aboriginal but has a great personality.”
He seems to be saying Australians generally don’t have a personality. (Watch the clip above.)
This is when fans immediately went into a tizzy!

‘Two Broke Girls’: A History Of Racially Insensitive Jokes
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time the show has been targeted for using racially insensitive jokes, according to Daily Mail.
In 2011, Kat Dennings‘ character uttered a racial slur.
“You can’t tell an Asian he made a mistake. He’ll go in back and throw himself on a sword,” she said.
And Beth Behrs‘ character once said, “Sophie is the loudest person we know. Even black people at the movies tell Sophie to be quiet.”
