The Casual Racism Displayed by a 'Holland's Got Talent' Judge Is Disgusting

The following segment from Holland’s Got Talent is set up to be another one of those heartwarming Susan Boyle stories, where the not particularly impressive-looking guy comes out and gives a surprisingly impressive performance. It is a good performance. Unfortunately, it is marred by the Dutch version of Simon Cowell (I assume), who feels compelled to make ugly Asian jokes that not only makes the contestant feel uncomfortable, but his fellow judges and the audience, which responds with uncomfortable, nervous laughter.

Jump to the :45 mark, and then again after the performance at 2:40. And at the very end, when another judge at least confronts the offending judge about it, though the offending judge, Gordon, just laughs it off.
