Default Ali's ESPN life retrospective--Billy Crystal

Did anyone else find Billy Crystal's "imitation" of Ali's speaking on the ESPN life retrospective, rude & degrading?

Didn't see it but I have seen him do countless of other impressions of Ali on other documentaries. Billy and Ali are good friends so it was obviously in good fun. Besides Billy does do a very good and true impression of Ali.
