Kimmel skit spurs protest in Bellevue

About 300 people gathered in Bellevue Downtown Park on Saturday (Nov. 9) to protest ABC and the Jimmy Kimmel show for its Kid’s Table skit last month, in which a child said “kill everyone in China” in response to Kimmel’s question of how the U.S. should solve its debt problem. On the show, Kimmel called the idea “interesting.” Protesters called it violent and discriminatory.

The Wall Street Journal reported that on Nov. 11, China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang, when asked his opinion on the matter, said, “ABC should face its mistake head on, and respond with a sincere attitude to the reasonable demands by Chinese in America, and prevent a similar incident from occurring again.”

Both ABC and Kimmel have since apologized for airing the remark. (end)

    1. To the protester holding the Hitler sign: you lose the argument by default. 2. The Foreign Ministry of China, a country with labor “re-education” camps, is lecturing us on our behavior?
