Leno’s gaffe no laughing matter for Sikhs

During a broadcast of "The Tonight Show" last week, host Jay Leno made a seemingly forgettable joke about presidential candidate Mitt Romney's wealth, putting up a photo of a religious temple, and saying it was Romney's summer home.

In reality, the structure was Sri Darbar Sahib, a temple regarded as the holiest site of the Sikh religion.

That has led to an outcry among some on Twitter, and the Indian government has also filed a formal complaint with the State Department.

 

Was Leno's joke out of line?
