Turk Reporter to Obama - Once You Go Blackface...

4/8/2009 12:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Long known for their biting social commentary, a Turkish TV reporter donned blackface during a newscast yesterday while doing a report about President Barack Obama.

Al Jolson would be proud. Everyone else? Not so much ...

UPDATE -- TMZ spoke to a translator at the Turkish Bureau of Tourism who told us the video is actually pretty funny, if you speak Turkish. Apparently there is even a Clinton/Lewinsky joke. Those funny Turks!
