This comedian makes such a great point about racism that David Letterman applauds him on camera.

Comedian Aziz Ansari deserves a gold star for what he just said about his recent beef with billionaire media magnate Rupert Murdoch.

A little background: Rupert Murdoch (owner of just about everything on earth) tweeted the following message after the Charlie Hebdo massacre:

I'm trying to ignore the way he spelled "Muslims." I'm failing miserably.


Aziz Ansari, who grew up in a Muslim household, was understandably upset. And he released a string of tweets showing how flawed that logic is.

When he talked about it on an episode of "The Late Show With David Letterman," Dave had to give credit where it was due, and he gave Aziz a hand. Here are some of the best #RupertsFault tweets from Aziz himself:

Maya Moore is arguably the most decorated professional women's basketball player in the U.S. A first-round draft pick in 2011, she's played for the Minnesota Lynx, where she became a six-time WNBA All-Star, a five-time All-WNBA First Team player, a four-time WNBA champion, and the WNBA Most Valuable Player in 2014.

But before the 2019 season, in the peak of her career, Moore decided to take the year off for a different kind of court battle—one that had wrongfully convicted a young man and doomed him to spend most of his life behind bars.
