'The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt': Too Edgy?

Tina Fey's follow-up to "30 Rock" is getting a lot of attention, not all of it good.
Her new Netflix series, "The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," is being criticized online for dealing in offensive humor and stereotypes. Since its debut, Buzzfeed has declared that the show has a "major race problem," and others criticized its treatment of an Asian character named Dong.
Slate says that the critics "aren't wrong ... but they are missing the point." Tituss Burgess, who plays Kimmy's black gay roommate, Titus (whom some have called a stereotype), says the whole controversy is "ridiculous." He told the Huffington Post, "I just find it hilarious that people are trying to arrest us for doing the opposite of what everyone thinks we're doing."
