W. Kamau Bell Ranks Volkswagen Super Bowl Ad On His List Of 'The Most Racist Things Of All Time' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

By now you've probably seen Volkswagen's controversial Super Bowl commercial featuring a white American man doing a cartoonish Jamaican accent, but how racist is the ad, really?

On this week's episode of "Totally Biased," W. Kamau Bell admitted that he wasn't as offended by the culturally insensitive ad as he thought he'd be ("First of all I am outraged -- because that white guy's fake Jamaican accent is way better than my fake Jamaican accent"). So, to find out where "white guy pretending to be Bob Marley" falls on the scale of "the most racist things of all time," Bell broke out some visual aids to show you exactly how offensive it is, in his opinion.

Watch the segment above and catch "Totally Biased" on Thursdays at 11:00 p.m. EST on FX.
