Indian video mocks Xi Jinping after Chinese state media posts 'racist' clip

It's a sight you'd expect to see in a colonial-era comedy act or a bad improvisation on the darkest corners of YouTube. A video of a man wearing a turban and fake beard attempting a crude impression of an Indian was posted Wednesday on several verified social media channels operated by official Chinese news agency Xinhua News. Entitled "7 Sins of India," the 3 minute 20 second clip appears intended to attack India's actions in an ongoing border dispute between the two neighboring countries. Retaliation from across the border was quick -- Indian media released its own video Friday, an animation showing Chinese president Xi Jinping dancing to Gangnam Style while dressed as Winnie the Pooh.
