This week’s video may cause you to be outraged and ruin your perfectly normal day. So consider yourself warned!

A celebrity judge on Holland’s Got Talent cracks racist jokes at a Chinese contestant while thinking that he has to be the funniest person alive. The jokes, which occur 0:48, 2:38 and 2:58, used references to Chinese food and also pointed out that the contestant’s appearance did not “fit” his voice.

“You look like a scientist!” said judge Gordon Heuckeroth, a 45-year-old Dutch singer and TV personality. When contestant Xiao Wang said he would be performing Verdi, Heuckeroth asked, “Which number are you singing? Number 39 with rice?”

Netizens were fuming after watching the video and some drew comparisons of the Dutch judge and Simon Cowell. However, most noted Heuckeroth was on another level of being a racist jerk.

“Simon is extremely sarcastic and blunt, to the point of being rude. But he’s not a f—ing blatant racist,” said Reddit user mankstar.

Other users pointed out how the judges stereotyped the contestant based on his appearance.

“Don’t you know only beautiful people can sing?” a commenter asked sarcastically.

A fellow judge, on the far left, expressed his disapproval of the racist comments made by Heuckeroth and shook his head in disbelief after the jokes were made. At the end of the clip, you can briefly catch him confronting his co-worker before the video is cut off.

“You’re really not supposed to say things like that to people…it’s awful,” he says. However, the racist judge seemed oblivious to his wrongdoing.

    Let the china peeps take care of themselves. We Koreans need not worry about them.

    If I were this contestant, I’d start making a big fool of these judges! Racist, uneducated, ignorant, fools, snobs. This contestant was way too nice and a gentleman.
