“How I Met Your Mother” Puts A Character In Yellowface

The reaction on Twitter: #HowIMetYourRacism. Update: “How I Met Your Mother” co-creator Carter Bays has responded to this criticism on Twitter.

Monday’s episode of “How I Met Your Mother” on CBS continued an ongoing joke about a slap bet between Marshall and Barney. In order to win the bet, and give the best slap to Barney, Marshall explains he learned the “Slap of a Million Exploding Suns” by seeking wisdom from three great masters.
