'2 Broke Girls' Premiere: 'Texas Hates Women, Florida Hates Blacks'
The minds behind the CBS comedy 2 Broke Girls thought it might be clever to catch viewers up on what they missed during the summer hiatus. They also figured they could hammer home a pair of false liberal memes at the same time.
The show's season premiere Monday night featured Max the waitress (Kat Dennings) attending to a young male diner.
"I've been out of town all summer. Anything new?" the customer asked her.
Max proceeded to rattle off a series of pop culture anecdotes, name checking Chris Brown, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Justin Bieber and Oprah Winfrey before turning political.
"The NSA checks our phones like a crazy ex-girlfriend ..." she said, and then added, "Oh, and Texas hates women and Florida hates blacks."
The former refers to the abortion debates going on in the Lone Star state, while the latter revisits George Zimmerman's acquittal in Florida teen Trayvon Martin's death.
