‘Outsourced’s’ Bader Stunned by Accusations Against Show

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

hollywoodnews.com: Diedrich Bader sounds downright shocked when told of commentary, on TV.com and other sites, accusing his forthcoming NBC “Outsourced” comedy of racist stereotyping — based on the show’s trailers and promos. The series has Ben Rappaport as the manager of a call processing center recently outsourced to Mumbai, India, for a U.S. novelty company.

“What? The stereotypes are office stereotypes,” responds the former “Drew Carey Show” actor. “There’s the boy who wants to get laid, the assistant manager who wants to be manager. They’re personalities everyone recognizes. The point is, the guy goes all the way to India and finds it’s the same office, just stranger food.”

In fact, referring to merchandise shown on the series as such as cheese wedge hats and “jingle boobs,” he points out, “The idea of seeing us through our cultural detritus — the show easily satirizes us through our novelties, our stuff, what amuses us, what we enjoy. It’s the Americans who should be worried.”

Bader notes that because his character, Charlie, “is so removed from the Indian experience, I stayed apart from the Indian actors while we were making the pilot by design. It wasn’t until the upfronts (new season presentations) that we hung out together as a cast. These guys are the friendliest guys in the world. The guy who plays Manmeet (Sacha Dhawan) is hilarious. I loved to see how they brought the script alive. It’s going to be so much fun. I can’t wait to get to work.” They start shooting in August.

“Pairing our show with ‘The Office’ on Thursday nights is perfect,” Bader adds.

    Boycott Outsourced. Boycott NBC Affiliates. Boycott Outsourced Advertisers

    Outsourcing, plus its evil, codependent cousins, H-1b and L-1 onshore corporate visas, have eradicated the American middle class.

    There is NOTHING funny about millions of Americans losing their jobs, homes, healthcare, life savings, and sadly, lives through no fault of their own due to corporate greed and political corruption have created loopholes so large to outsource American jobs that even Schumer wants to close them. .

    NBC,do you think its funny that corporate greed and a corrupt Congress passed laws that allow employers to fire Americans and replace us with corporate visa workers from other countries? Do you think its funny that despite months and months of aggressively searching for jobs – to hear NOTHING? And worse, with no solutions or jobs in sight. And, not for lack of aggressive job searches. Imagine sending hundreds and hundreds of job applications and NEVER hear back. Pretty funny to you, eh?

    If NBC wants to get laughs out of tragic situations, how about a situation comedy of slaves in chains on boats to America. It that’s not contemporary, how about Holocaust survivors living in prison camps? At least most of the holocaust survivors are deceased.

    BOYCOTT Outsourced, BOYCOTT NBC and its affiliates and BOYCOTT Outsourced’s Advertisers.

    NBC leadership. your out of touch executives will soon join the ranks of BP and corrupt politicians on the unemployment line.

    Oh Please! Firstly nobody is holding a gun to your head to watch the show. Secondly, those Indian workers are getting paid much less than you- perhaps a tenth of your paycheck. Companies are not charities – the objective is to make money. If you feel so strongly then how come we see so many ‘Made in China’ products out there that Americans are lapping up ? Why don’t you buy American only? Some American probably lost his job there didn’t he? Stop buying Non-US products and we’ll see how long you can commit to it. Truth is, you cant – it’s too expensive. So stop blaming companies & those poor workers who are simply making a living. All you whiners are a bunch of hypocrites.
