It’s no secret that the host of ABC's “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” isn’t a fan of the host of NBC's “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” and, in a new interview with Rolling Stone, Kimmel, shown here, slams Leno for being a sellout. Wikipedia

Even after the U.S. network ABC released an apology, many in the Chinese community are still outraged over an Oct. 16 skit that appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" The TV skit, which featured Jimmy Kimmel asking a roundtable of children about American politics, particularly U.S. debt to China, ended up being the target of many angry Chinese-Americans.
