Fox News has not been having a great week after “The O’Reilly Factor” aired probably one of the most ethnically-insensitive and racist segments in television history. For those who haven’t seen it, you can watch the original footage below.
Since then, a petition has started to cancel the show and both C100 and AAJA have issued statements demanding an apology from Fox News. They have yet to respond to the demands.
Jesse Watters, the host of the show, gave a non-apology on Twitter shortly after the backlash.
However, thanks to The Daily Show, the Asian American community has a new hero. Watch Ronny Chieng, a comedian from Australia, completely obliterate Jesse Watters in a segment of his own.
