SNL’s Insensitve Rosetta Stone Skit

This Saturday, NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” aired a skit portraying various uses for the language learning software “Rosetta Stone” – specifically to talk with women (I hope) from Thailand. It is implied they are talking about physical interaction. It’s no secret that Thailand is known for an underground sex trade. President Obama has designated January as “National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month” (last year) and re-designated it again this year.

I appreciate a good joke. I appreciate some sarcasm. (Trust me) But I think this was insensitive and poorly researched.

E!Online actually has a brief article about the skit here.
