Travis of "So You Think You Can Dance" is a nice guy and a talented dancer. So why couldn't someone have clued in the poor kid on the ugly history of white folks comparing athletic black men to monkeys? As idiotic as he sounds, we're sure Travis's giddy, post-Krumping haze is to blame and he didn't mean anything by it -- even if Lil' C of "Rize" fame doesn't look all that sure from the audience.
