ABC Head Honchos Apologize For Jimmy Kimmel's Children Sketch Featuring Crack Against China!

This didn't seem like a good joke to make at the time, and we called it!

Higher ups at ABC have issued a formal apology after Jimmy Kimmel aired a sketch on his show that rubbed a lot of people the wrong way!

The Jimmy Kimmel Live skit featured a ton of cute kids discussing how to end the government shutdown, which ironically was done or nearly done by the time this skit aired, except one kid got ahead of himself and suggested the US should kill all the people in China.

That comment rubbed a lot of people the wrong way!

Here was ABC's FULL apology:

“We offer our sincere apology. We would never purposefully broadcast anything to upset the Chinese community, Asian community, anyone of Chinese descent or any community at large. Our objective is to entertain. We took swift action to minimize the distribution of the skit by removing it from all public platforms available to us and editing it out of any future airings of the show. We hope our actions and our apology effectively address your concerns. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.”

We're hopeful this drama comes to a swift conclusion after this sincere apology.

But maybe Jimmy Kimmel should avoid any kids in sketches for a little while.

He always gets in trouble when he brings cute kids into the fold!

Check out the original video that made so many people upset by watching it (above) !!!

    well atleast we know it wasn't scripted, I did find it a little funny because kids do say the darndest things even though it kind of hurt my heart hearing it.

    Seriously?? Has our country come to this?? We are now indirectly censoring children? Sure, it was Kimmel who aired the skit… Sure, it is Kimmel who is the adult. However, I don't believe Kimmel agreed with the points of discussion the children stated or repeated what the children stated to be the solution. I believe, the Jimmy Kimmel show's purpose is that of comedy, of satire, etc. Our society has become fearful, remedial and overly "pc" conscience to the degree it might implode on itself someday. If people start apologizing for every possible thing that may or may not offend someone we all become a country of vapid individuals following a herd with no real authenticity of our own.

    ps. Didn't Bill Cosby do a show very similar to the Jimmy Kimmel sketch that aired for quite a while & made him quite a bit of cash? If memory serves me correctly, that show was less "PC" than the Kimmel skit…

    Seriously? It wasn't a big deal. Stop crying. I'm sure the Chinese have said way worse about Americans!
