And because twerking pranks and feuds with Kanye West haven't got him enough attention the past few weeks, here's more Jimmy Kimmel news.

ABC has apologized for a segment on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" during which a child joked about killing Chinese people to help erase the U.S. debt, according to People.com.

The comment came last week during a bit in which youngsters commented on news events, poking fun at childish politicians.

A group called 80-20, which identifies itself as a pan-Asian-American political organization, complained to ABC.

In a letter dated Oct. 25, ABC reportedly responded to the group, "We offer our sincere apology. 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. We took swift action to minimize the distribution of the skit by removing it from all public platforms available to us and editing it out of any future airings of the show. We hope our actions and our apology effectively address your concerns. Thank you for bringing this to our attention."

Time.co reported that protesters in San Francisco marched on ABC headquarters there. "We have a sense of humor," the march's leader, Oakland resident Carl Chan, said in a speech, "but not at the expense of killing all Chinese."

He added, "Today's hate speech becomes tomorrow's hate crime."
