SNL is once again in the hot seat for its impersonation of an Indian-American celebrity. Last year, the show had Iranian-American actress Nasim Pedrad show up in brownface to impersonate Aziz Ansari. Now Pedrad is impersonating Bobby Jindal, a move that’s led some viewers to voice frustrating at the show’s repeated misses on brown characters.
