News reporter laughs hysterically at the name Dikshit
Posted by on Oct 6th, 2010

Ok so it’s still Wednesday and i know this is childish, but kak funny so i’m throwing it in. Thank me later.

If you’ve been following the Commonwealth Games in India then you will undoubtedly have heard about Delhi Chief Minister, Sheila Dikshit. True story..that is her name. Now watch this news broadcaster absolutely piss himself trying to pronounce it.


Wait for his laugh at the 25 second mark.

That laugh killed me.

On a serious note though, his (Paul Henry) comment about India after that was offside hey. The other two broadcasters not too stoked either and it’s caused somewhat of a public outcry after people complained.

It’s not funny at all. You should be ashamed for writing this. His racist remarks are disgusting and i hope he gets fired.

Not trying to defend him but i think he was referring to india being a shit-hole, with sewage openly flowing through many of the cities’ streets (which sadly it is) rather than being racist……’should be Dik-in-Shit, walking down the street’ was what he said…he was just slagging off the cleanliness of the roads…. i dont think there is any need for the politically correct brigade to start tearing of their clothes and going on strike…. i think it is everyone elses’ problem if you automatically think he was bringing race or skin colour into it…perhaps a look at yourself Disgraceful maybe?

He doesn’t need to be fired for being racist, he needs to be fired for being so blatantly disrespectful like that.

I mean it is one thing to first say it like it is pronounced but to continue on and on once you know the actual pronunciation is just insulting and disrespectful.

It is the job of the news anchor to know the names they are about to use, apologize if they say it incorrectly, and do their best to say it the right way from there on out.

What he did was way out of line, he says it wrong gets corrected yet still goes on to make fun of her name.

I don’t care if he apologizes or not because fake apologies are useless, but he does need some kind of punishment, that was just pure wrong, pure disrespectful and so screwed up. The fact that someone wouldn’t make sure they are saying your name correctly shows how little the respect you, if he can’t respect the people he is talking about then he needs to find a profession where he wouldn’t have to do such things.
