Former “Tonight Show” host Jay Leno asserted that “college kids” these days have no idea what actual racism is during an interview on “Late Night With Seth Myers” Thursday night.
The legendary personality recalled an instance where a “Tonight Show” intern offered to pick up his lunch, but somehow ended up accusing him of being “racist.”
Here’s how Leno tells the story:
“College kids now are so politically correct. I mean, to the point where — I’ll give you an example, we had interns at the show, college interns. Like, the last year of the show, one of the interns comes and says, ‘Mr. Leno, I’m getting lunch. what do you want?’ I said, ‘I don’t know, where are you going?’ He said, ‘we’re getting Mexican.’ I said, ‘I don’t really like Mexican.’ He goes, ‘whoa, that’s kind of racist.’ That’s not racist.”
“No, being anti-guacamole is not racist, okay?” Leno said. “You have no idea what racism is. That’s not racist, you idiot! You moron.”
