Robin Williams may have to scratch Rio de Janeiro off his list of possible vacation sites.

Some citizens and officials in the Brazilian city are upset with comments the comedian made on a recent appearance on the "Late Show" with David Letterman, saying Rio received the 2016 Olympics because it sent "50 strippers and a pound of blow" to compete with Chicago's entourage that included President Barack Obama and Oprah Winfrey.

No joke: Rio upset by Robin Williams' Olympic line (http://www.lacrossetribune.com/news/weird-news/article_8f65a93c-47e5-50bc-8049-b3b9f51afd61.html - broken link)

Aw, c'mon. It was supposed to be funny. Tactless, perhaps, but I'm sorry they are taking it so seriously.

First the Taco Bell dog and now Robin Williams.................... good grief!

Having said that, I know lots of Latinos and generally they love laughing at themselves...so I'm not sure who is stirring up all the 'I'm offended' stuff.
