ABC apologizes for Jimmy Kimmel segment
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- ABC has issued an apology for a segment of Jimmy Kimmel Live that aired a few weeks ago on ABC7.
However, it was not enough to stop hundreds of protesters from demonstrating outside ABC stations in New York and San Francisco.
The marches were organized by a group called 80-20, which identifies itself as a pan-Asian American political organization. They're upset with a segment in which a child joked about killing the people of China to help erase the U.S. debt.
In a letter to the group dated last Friday, ABC said it would never purposefully do anything to upset the Asian community, and that the segment would be edited out of the episode for any future airings.
