Should Jimmy Kimmel Be Fired?
Jimmy Kimmel is in trouble for a piece which aired way back on October 16th! It featured his “Kids Table” sketch and dealt with the U.S. paying back the debt it owes China.
When asked about it, one of the kids said the answer was to “kill everyone in China!” This past weekend 1500 protestors showed up outside ABC studios in Burbank, California, calling for Kimmel’s firing. In New York protestors were carrying signs comparing him to Hitler and people also showed up at ABC affiliates in Phoenix and Houston demanding the same thing.
Both ABC and Jimmy Kimmel issued immediate apologies, but Chinese-American activists aren’t buying it. This tempest has even caught the attention of the White House because a petition with 100,00 signatures was posted to the White House website and believe it or not, now requires some sort of statement from the White House.
