Just to play devil's advocate on this, Dame Edna is a comedian from Great Britain who dresses in drag in the most garishly loud costumes you could possibly imagine. "She" is also incredibly abrasive and will say just about anything to anyone regardless of nationality or ethnicity
The Brits make fun of the Spanish and the French like we make fun of Canadians and I really don't think it was a comment that was meant to intentionally hurt anyone.
Feel free to disagree with my view. In fact, I encourage it.
