Bill O’Reilly, host of Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor,” is receiving nationwide backlash for a segment of his show where correspondent Jesse Watters traveled to New York City’s Chinatown to pretty much make a mockery of racist Asian stereotypes.
O’Reilly introduced the “Watters’ World” segment by saying, “In the first presidential debate, China was mentioned 12 times, mostly in a negative way, especially by Donald Trump. So we sent Watters down to New York’s Chinatown to sample political opinion.”
The segment then opened with stereotypical Chinese music and included Watters asking Asian people completely offensive questions like,
“Do they call Chinese food in China just ‘food?’”, “Is it the year of the Dragon? Rabbit?”, “Am I supposed to bow to say hello?”, “Tell me what’s not made in China?”, “Do you know karate?”, and “How do they dance in China?”
Watters even asked a young woman which candidate she will vote for in the presidential election.
She answered, “I really don’t wanna vote for Trump, so Hillary.”
He responded, “So China can keep ripping us off?”
