Haley forced to sit through joke about Sikhism

Just minutes after explaining why she converted from Sikhism to Christianity, Nikki Haley was asked this question by a TIME editor.

"In New York City, which you're visiting for a couple of days, a lot of our taxi drivers are Sikhs.

If you get one, are you going to give them a slightly bigger tip?"

Even if you get past the question itself, the context makes it even more insensitive, considering Haley had just explained why she was no longer a Sikh.

The exchange comes at the very end.
