posted by Randall

Padma LakshmiAsAmNews has been reporting on the lame exchange on instagram between the band leader of the Jimmy Fallon Show, Questlove, and two of his cohorts, producer Dawn Englehart and Top Chef Padma Lakshmi.

Questlove apologized for his part on a heartfelt Facebook post.

Now Lakshmi has offered her apologies too.


In case you’re catching up, Questlove was on tour in Japan when he inexplicably decided it would be a good time to mock the Japanese.

It went like this.

questlove: Hey @dawnenglehart is it racist for me to write the Sour Tlain? #chipanesedownunder2013
dawnenglehart: Nah you’re in The Loots. You’re allowed.
dawnenglehart: Arrowed.
padmalakshmi: Hahahaha ha! You ruys clack me lup

Looks like both Questlove and Padmi have learned a valuable lesson. Hopefully others have too.
