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.
In an Oct. 25 letter to the group, ABC said it would never purposefully do anything to upset the Chinese, Asian or other communities. The network says the skit will be edited out of the Jimmy Kimmel Live episode for future airings or any other distribution, including online.

Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel quickly dispelled the idea their so-called rap feud was a publicity stunt during a sometimes uncomfortable appearance on the comedian's TV show.
Speculation that the rapper's anger over a Jimmy Kimmel Live parody skit that mocked him was staged was immediate after West lashed out at Kimmel in late September.
But both said that their beef was authentic during a 30-minute interview on Wednesday night's show in which West discussed a range of topics including his artistry, paparazzi, family, fashion and the idea of celebrity.
Kimmel said early in the interview that he knows West personally and always found him friendly, but that he seems misunderstood.

Apparently, imitation wasn't the sincerest form of flattery for Kanye West.
In a colossal Twitter rant posted Thursday, the rapper blasted Jimmy Kimmel after the funnyman ran a video spoof on Jimmy Kimmel Live! earlier this week that ribbed West's recent BBC interview, in which he boasted that he's "the No. 1 rock star on the planet."
But the parody sketch left West anything but amused, as was made evident in his litany of scathing Tweets.
