During the episode, Steve Carell’s Michael Scott forces his employees to take part in a racial diversity seminar, while speaking in an Indian accent for the entire session as well as reciting a standup routine about race by comedian Chirs Rock.

Comedy Central had been airing a marathon of US Office episodes, however, fans reported that upon the conclusion of the pilot episode, it went straight to episode 3.

One fan tweeted back in March, “Comedy Central is airing a marathon of¬†The Office¬†starting from the pilot episode and it goes directly from episode 1 to episode 3, skipping DIVERSITY DAY. Ok I get it’s definitely bad but so is almost all the humour in the show. Please give me Diversity Day.”

According to another fan, Halloween and Christmas Party were also removed.

Comedy Central has not yet made a statement nor publicly addressed why the episode is being removed from TV schedules.
