DrAdsforProfileWell the Doc opened up the old mailbag today and here’s what poured out.

Dear Dr. Ads,

Imagine my surprise when I unfolded the Boston Globe the other day and saw this:

My first reaction was WTF?

What’s your reaction? Is Jimmy Kimmel really in trouble? That’s okay with me if he is.

– Sarah S

Dear Sarah S:

Jimmy Kimmel is really in – who knows what.

Here’s the story as told in the ad:

You can check out jimmy-kimmel-wrong.com for yourself, along with mitbbs.com, which says it paid for the ad. (Just a heads up: mitbbs.com is in Chinese.)

Change.org is also in the mix.

Stop Jimmy Kimmel and ABC from promoting genocide of ALL Chinese people: Jimmy Kimmel must be fired

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 incriminating video:

 

 

The Hollywood Reporter reports that ABC has apologized – twice – for Kimmel’s Chinese fire drill.

First apology: “ABC would never purposefully do anything to upset the Chinese, Asian or other communities.”

Second apology: “The simple fact is, the segment should never have been broadcast. Systems we have in place for these types of things did not function properly, and steps have been made to try and prevent this kind of egregious mistake from occurring in the future.”

But apparently that’s not enough.

China Demands ABC Respond to Jimmy Kimmel Skit With ‘Sincere Attitude’

 

JIMMY KIMMEL

 

Jimmy Kimmel‘s China problem just won’t go away.

After two public apologies from ABC over a satirical skit aired on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Oct. 16 — in which a child suggested the U.S. “kill everyone in China” to resolve the national debt – China’s Foreign Ministry has demanded further contrition from the broadcaster.

Maybe Kimmel could kill himself.

Just sayin’.

Yo.
