"I'm done with all this talk about hyphenated Americans. We are not Indian-Americans, Irish-Americans, African-Americans, rich Americans, or poor Americans – we are all Americans," he said.

His comments earned the ire of many Indians and Indian-Americans on Twitter, most notably comedian Hari Kondabolu.

Bobby Jindal is only Indian when he needs money from the community, when it sounds good in his narrative & when he buys Fair & Lovely cream.

Kondabolu launched a series of tweets mocking the presidential candidate's remarks.

Bobby Jindal is so white, he beat himself up after 9/11.


Bobby Jindal is so white, he's looking for a minority running mate "to add diversity to the ticket."

It didn't take long for #BobbyJindalIsSoWhite to become a trending hashtag.

And pretty soon, Indians from across the world were piling on the mockery.
