BURBANK, Calif. (AP) — More than a thousand people picketed ABC’s Burbank headquarters over the weekend to protest a “Jimmy Kimmel Live” show in which a youngster said the United States could resolve its debt to China by killing everyone in the Asian country.

The Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/17hwOWJ) reports that Saturday’s demonstration was peaceful and no one was arrested.

Kimmel and ABC have apologized for the Oct. 16 “Kids Table” segment and the network says it will not air again.

Kimmel began by asking a panel of children how the United States should resolve its $1.3 trillion debt to China.

After one youngster shouted, “Kill everyone in China,” Kimmel chuckled and replied, “That’s an interesting idea.”

only retarded people would think its a good idea to ask kids that question anyway. they were probably hoping one of the kids would say something about the teaparty or gop and they’d have a sound bite they’d use right up until 2016.

People who take the words of a child seriously have a lot of growing up to do.

“no one in their right mind thinks it was anything but humor, zheesh...”

If it were not for fracking, I think it is a plausible scenario.

If the USA were to run out of oil and unable to buy it because china was buying it all, the USA would probably attack under a false flag.

I believe that Chinese Blast Map really was published last week. Not one word about from President I-Didnt-Know-Nuthin.

Kind of reminds of why radio shockjocks JV and Elvis were fired over this telephone prank. A few Asians were offended and complained.
