ABC Apologizes for Child's Ad-Libbed Joke on Kimmel's Show

(AP) LOS ANGELES–ABC is apologizing for a segment of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” in which a child joked about killing Chinese people to help erase the U.S. debt.

The boy’s unscripted comment came during a comedy bit in which youngsters commented on news events. The skit, aimed at poking fun at childish politicians, aired last week on Kimmel’s late-night talk show.

ABC’s apology came in response to a complaint from a group called 80-20 that identifies itself as a pan-Asian-American political organization.

In an Oct. 25 letter to the group, ABC said it would never purposefully do anything to upset the Chinese, Asian or other communities. The network says the skit will be edited out of the “Jimmy Kimmel Live” episode for future airings or any other distribution, including online.
