Jimmy Kimmel must be fired

    1. Boycott JimmyKimmel
    2. Petition by

      Boycott JimmyKimmel

      San Francisco, United States

We are taking this seriously because the same rhetoric was used in Nazi Germany against Jewish people. 

This Jimmy Kimmel's 'Kids Table' show was aired on ABC on 10/16/2013 and talked about killing all the Chinese so that the states do not need to pay back their debts to China. The video can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bRztij26Tfc

The comment "Killing all the Chinese" is NOT a joke, no matter who says it.  It is totally unacceptable. Jimmy Kimmel and the ABC network should know this "Killing all the Chinese" comment is offensive and racist.

Jimmy Kimmel and the ABC network sends a very clear bad message that it is "interesting" to kill all the people to whom you owe money. "The Kids Table - Government shut down" is publicly talking about and laughing about genocide. It is immoral, illegal and inhumane. 

A formal, public apology must be issued by ABC and Jimmy Kimmel to ALL of its viewers, not just those who are Chinese, because this is promoting hatred, racism and genocide. ABC should fire Jimmy Kimmel and anyone else responsible for letting this happen.

A policy must be institutionalized so that this kind of racist stupidity will never happen again.

      Petition Organizer

      We reached the 3000 milestone in just 3 days! It is so empowering reading your comments.

      The original video on abc.go.com is removed and the one on youtube.com is taken private. They felt the weight of our complaints.
      But this is far from enough, we haven't heard an apology. More importantly, a policy must be institutionalized so that this kind of racist stupidity will never happen again.

      If you haven't done so, please sign the White House petition here:

      Woah! That's half my family that they're against! And where did that kid get that idea from!?

      There are many people that are offended by this and I am too but he did mean for it to be a humorous joke to the debt that America is in because they do owe China money. But then again, if Kimmel's fired for this very reason, think about the backlash that Chinese people would get. But not just the Chinese, many people of Asian descent because to many people in this world "Asian's all look the same."

      You all need to think about the long term effects, because he is loved by many people ALL OVER THE WORLD. So what would his fans do if he were to be fired? I'm sure you all know the answer.

      I personally think that he should apologise, embarrass himself just for you guys and avoid the subject of genocide or crime against a whole ethnicity, gender, religion, etc. But it's not just him that's to blame, he's just the puppet for the whole thing. Everyone else that was included in creating the video should be blamed as well but you're only blaming Kimmel. Why's that? Why not the producer, the cameramen, the scriptwriter, the person that airs his shows or whoever else there is ( I don't really watch him so I have no idea).

      In saying all this though, mum and dad do want him fired and support this petition (understandable) because they won't listen to me (not understandable) and what I have to say. So if they ever see this...I love you mum and dad! Don't ground me! xo

      P.S. Don't fire him, you'll just create a huge backlash that will bring people a step closer to hatred.

      I suspect ABC ever dare to do the same thing to other ethnic groups like Jewish, African American or Hispanics. Why Chinese american? Just because Asian americans are usually let such things go easily?

      I really take this seriously, elite minority is easily be used by politicians to be blamed for all social issues. Kimmel's show is a dangerous beginning. It all starts with something like a "joke" -- This reminds me of what happens to the Jews in Nazi Germany and the Chinese in Indonesia in the 1960s'.
