The Fresh Prince might now be the box office king, but the real-life king of the ring he portrays in the new movie Ali is catching some heat.

The Anti-Defamation League issued a statement condemning some ethnic jokes that boxing legend Muhammad Ali made at a launch party last week for the new movie based on his life. No details of the jokes were released, but apparently the champ told two ethnic jokes in front of a group of politicians and Hollywood types.

The new blockbuster Ali opened Christmas Day.
