What do you think of this movie ad? Disrespectful or NOT?

Watch the video from just 0-40 seconds, in it's entirety. I'm curious to know what your opinions are.
This movie is a romantic comedy, that's suppose to come out later this year. In the first 40 seconds of the clip, they all go through his previous girlfriends names. The first few pictures of his ex girlfriends mentioned had real names like Any and Lizzy, but when the two pictures of the Asian ex girlfriends show up, they don't actually have names, but instead called them "this Korean" and "that Korean".
To me, "this Korean" or "that Korean" could of easily been translated to be, "that Asian slut who doesn't have a name so she's not worthy of attention".
They had actual names for the other girls, but when the Asians came up, they just referred to them as "this Korean"?
Imagine if that was a black or Hispanic girl, and they just called her "that African girl" or "that Hispanic girl". The black and Hispanic communities would be outraged.
What if that was Mali, Tina Pheng or Rosy and they just said, "that Cambodian girl"?
I know it's a comedy but when you live in a colorblind society, this stuff isn't suppose to happen.
Suffice to say, I won't be watching this movie and won't make them rich by buying movie tickets.
