There's never any excuse for racism. It's not OK, and will never be OK.

The writers at How I Met Your Mother forgot this when they dressed three characters up in Yellowface.

No, really, they did.

Naturally, people were angry.

Like, REALLY angry.

The online movement was born.

And they all had a point.

The Yellowface was vile, but the backlash was heartening, prompting a rethink for TV.

The How I Met Your Mother creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas apologized, at least.

And really seemed to mean it.
