Presidential hopeful Gov. Bobby Jindal caused a wave of blacklash after saying he was "done with" being labeled as an "Indian-American" in his presidential race announcement Wednesday.

In his campaign launch, Jindal told supporters he was against "hyphenated-Americans."

"And I'm done with all this talk about hyphenated Americans. We are not Indian-Americans, Irish – Americans, African– Americans, rich Americans, or poor Americans – we are all Americans," Jindal said in his speech Wednesday.

His statements sparked the hashtag #BobbyJindalIsSoWhite and a slew of tweets criticizing and supporting Jindal.
