erin gray's bad asian accent moment

Stupid. This morning on CBS' Early Show, Julie Chen sat down with some 1970s TV superheroes—Erin Gray of Buck Rogers, Lou Ferrigno of The Incredible Hulk and Lynda Carter of Wonder Woman. Before Heroes, we had these heroes.

Yay. So? So about halfway through the segment, when asked about doing tai chi these days, Erin Gray busts out this terrible Chinese accent. Whaaaaat? Ridiculous. Watch it here: 1970s Superheros Unite!

It's brief, but it comes out of nowhere, and it's completely inappropriate—especially considering that Julie Chen (you know, the Chinese American host?) is sitting right there. Looks like Ms. Gray left her good sense in the 1970s. That's racist!

The segment is also worth watching to see an old clip of Lou Ferrigno as the Hulk beating up a gorilla. (Thanks, Laura.)
