Fox News Gets Racist in Chinatown, Offends Everyone

Say what you want about Fox News, but it is a real achievement to offend an entire nationality with outdated stereotypes in just five minutes.

The network did just that last week after a “light-hearted” segment on the network's O'Reilly Factor show about the views of Donald Trump from the residents of New York's Chinatown turned into a racist horror show where nearly every outdated Chinese stereotype was trotted out. 

Jesse Watters, the host of the "Watters' World" segment, specializes in being a professional moron and offensive clown. During the segment Watters asks ordinary Chinese-American women whether one should bow when saying "hello." In addition to this shitshow, Watters spends most of the clip mixing up Chinese and Japanese culture and generally offending everyone he meets.

The clip was met with heavy backlash in the US, to which Watters responded with a non-apology on Twitter.
