Jimmy Kimmel Skit Spurs Outrage, Now Apology

ABC is apologizing for a segment of Jimmy Kimmel Live in which a child joked about killing Chinese people to help erase the U.S. debt.

The boy's unscripted comment came during a comedy bit in which youngsters commented on news events. The skit, aimed at poking fun at childish politicians, aired last week on Kimmel's late-night talk show.

ABC's apology came in response to a complaint from a group called 80-20 that identifies itself as a pan-Asian-American political organization.

"I had to get off the plane to go to work, so I had to sleep on the plane," Renner, 41, recalled on Tuesday's Jimmy Kimmel Live! "So I take a little sleeping pill, pop it and realize nothing's happening – but something else was happening."

What he thought was Ambien was actually Viagra, given to him by a friend.

The audience greeted Sheen with thunderous applause as he barreled in, and he rewarded their enthusiasm with high-fives, autographs and, later, novelty T-shirts sporting some of his most famous quips.

Sheen, 45, also showed guest Mark Cuban – with whom he's considering going into business – some serious affection, giving the billionaire a bear hug.
