Protests from San Francisco to New York City erupted over late night show host Jimmy Kimmel on October 28 after airing a segment with Kimmel asking children their thoughts on world issues. In the segment, Kimmel asks how they would handle the $1 trillion-plus bill the U.S. owes China, a child made a comment about how the U.S. should 'kill everyone in China."
The White House condemned the sketch in an statement online November 7, after a petition against Kimmel received more than 100,000 signatures.
