Biden adopts 'Indian' accent' during call centre job verbal gaffe in New Hampshire

New Hampshire, Fri, 27 Jan 2012 ANI

New Hampshire (US), Jan.27 (ANI): U.S. Vice-President Joe Biden has been known in the past to commit to verbal gaffes and for upsetting the Indian American community.


It did so again in New Hampshire on Thursday, when he adopted foreign accent while discussing the departure of call-center jobs overseas


News sites were quick to label the accent as Indian, as the subcontinent is home to many customer calls centers, and Biden had referenced India in his remarks.


Biden was addressing workers of a company that has partnered with a local college in Rochester.


He twice appeared to deploy a foreign accent while discussing the loss of call-center jobs to other countries.


All this took place in a matter of just under 30 seconds, the New York Daily News reports. New York magazine, however, opined that Biden might have been imitating the character of a Russian-sounding call-center worker made popular in Discovery Card commercials. (ANI)
