ABC has apologized for a skit on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in which a child suggested that the population of China could be killed to fix America’s debt to the nation, reports TheWrap.com.
The skit involved a group of kids coming up with ideas about how America could erase its debt to the Asian nation. "Kill everyone in China," one child said in the skit, which aired last week. Other children offered what the article says were more "reasonable" methods, such as building a wall.
"We offer our sincere apology,” the network said. “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.”
ABC said it would edit out the skit from repeats of the episode, the piece adds.
