The Talk - Julie Chen Reacts To Controversial News Segment Mocking Chinese Americans: 'He Had An Agenda'
Air Date: 10/06/16
Fox News aired a controversial segment of a correspondent interviewing people in Chinatown in NYC, which has been called racist and offensive. Julie Chen reacts, "Anyone who knows me knows I have a great sense of humor -- I'm the first person to laugh at a joke about myself, my culture. I'll make the jokes, you know, I'm not one of these overly sensitive people. So, that being said, I felt like watching that piece... I felt like he had an agenda to portray Chinese Americans in Chinatown in lower Manhattan to be ignorant and unaware. But instead, in my opinion, he's the one that came across as ignorant and unaware." She continues, "As a broadcaster, I found what he did highly irresponsible. When you're a broadcaster and you're on a news channel, people trust you, you have to have credibility... Maybe the worst offense was that it wasn't funny."
