Navajo Nation

'Mike & Molly' Joke

IS RACIST!!!

EXCLUSIVE

030113_mikeandmindy_launchThe Navajo Nation is LIVID after a joke aired on "Mike & Molly" ... calling Native Americans a bunch of drunks ... and now the group is demanding an apology from CBS.

In case you missed it, Mike's mother on the show -- an Archie Bunker type -- says, "You ever been to Arizona? It's just furnace full of drunk Indians."

The joke isn't sitting well in the Native American community. A rep for the Navajo Nation tells TMZ,  "For a show like this displaying us in a negative light is just unacceptable, they are taking a shot at the entire state of Arizona and its indigenous people."

The rep says, "An apology would be the right thing to do, but some damage done can't be fixed in an apology."

Calls to CBS weren't returned.

All the comments in the world will not change this RACIST remark. The way to change this, is to boycott the show and to not buy what the sponsors are peddling. Write to CBS., Leslie Moonves, or better yet call them or Twitter the network, but do something. Silence is taken as approval.

Mike and Molly are a bad example for our kids!
Mike would collapse the suspension in a CPD police car!
Mile & Molly would collapse the mattress in a bed!
Let's replace the show with some thin replacements and EXAMPLES!
