Eddie Says He Was Target of Racism by Siri

Eddie has a remote control at his house that you speak into, and it will pull up whatever you asked for. His kids wanted to watch The Legend of The Three Caballeros, so he spoke it into the remote for the TV to find. Eddie spoke it the right way it’s pronounced multiple times, and nothing came up. Finally, when he spoke it without the accent, it pulled up no problem.  

He thought it was racist because it didn’t understand his Spanish accent and only understood English. No one else thought it was racist and the setting his remote is on only understands English. Bobby Bones and Lunchbox’s remotes also have trouble understanding what they’re asking for sometimes because of their southern accents, but they don’t think that makes their remote racist.
