what not to ask aziz ansari

Yikes. Funnyman Aziz Ansari, star of NBC's Parks and Recreation and the upcoming movie 30 Minutes or Less, recently had a not-so-funny encounter with an audience member who came at him with a racist question during a standup set at Largo in Los Angeles: Aziz Ansari has tense moment with audience member during club set.
Appearing as a last-minute guest during comedian Tig Notaro's show at the Largo at the Coronet, Ansari began taking questions from the crowd when a woman queried, "Why don't you have a red dot on your forehead?"

While the audience gasped, a shocked Ansari replied by asking why she didn't have the word "c--t on her forehead." Then he remarked about how there are still "racist" people in the world.
Ouch. I'm definitely not going to condone his retort, but I can condone the verbal asskicking. Because I can understand the frustration of getting smacked in the face with dumbsh*t remarks like that. He's a standup comedian, coming back at her with what's in a standup comedian's arsenal. And it wasn't pretty.
