I don't know. We got one complaint that our ogre in "Puss in Boots" was 
an offensive stereotype. He is a blotchy dark blue, has grotesque 
features, and speaks in a gruff voice with just a hint of Irish. But 
the comment did not come from an Irish blotchy blue skinned person, I 
think maybe they were just thin skinned.  :oD
