原标题:美国广播公司就辱华言论发布公开道歉声明

新华网洛杉矶11月10日电(记者 柳丝)美国广播公司(ABC)新闻发言人霍普·哈特曼10日对新华社记者确认,该公司已在其网站上发出公开道歉声明,承诺将加强节目审查制度以杜绝辱华言论类似事件再次发生。

记者在ABC网站上看到,该声明显示日期是11月8日。声明说:“我们谨代表美国广播公司和吉米·基梅尔脱口秀节目组的每位成员,就2013年10月16日吉米·基梅尔脱口秀中‘儿童圆桌会议’的节目内容表达我们发自肺腑的诚恳的歉意。”

声明承认该公司审查制度在处理节目内容上出现了问题,表示已采取具体步骤“以防止今后出现类似严重的错误”。声明还说,ABC已彻底删除冒犯华人的那部分内容使之不会在回放时出现,公司所有网络播放平台清除该内容,永久取消“儿童圆桌会议”节目环节。

声明说:“我们已经加强了节目审查制度,在节目播出准则以及娱乐节目内容方面采取了新的规范举措,以保证今后有类似问题内容出现时能立即汇报到相应的管理层,由他们迅速妥善地处理。”

在上月ABC一档访谈节目中,主持人基梅尔邀请4名不同肤色的孩子组成“儿童圆桌会议”讨论国家大事。当被问及如何处理美国欠中国上万亿美元债务时,一儿童答“要绕到地球另一边去杀光中国人”。基梅尔调侃道,“这是一个有趣的想法”。  

节目播出后激起在美华侨华人愤慨,各大团体纷纷要求美国广播公司和基梅尔公开道歉。基梅尔在10月28日晚播出的节目中对有关歧视性言论表示歉意,但这一道歉被指缺乏实质内容与诚意。11月9日美国华侨华人在洛杉矶、旧金山、纽约、华盛顿、迈阿密等全美27个城市举行针对ABC辱华言论的抗议活动。

ABC Television Network

Statement on behalf of ABC Entertainment and Jimmy Kimmel Live!

On behalf of everyone at Jimmy Kimmel Live and ABC, please accept our heartfelt, sincere apology for the airing of the “Kids Table” segment of Jimmy Kimmel Live! on October 16, 2013.

The simple fact is, the segment should never have been broadcast. Systems we have in place for these types of things did not function properly, and steps have been made to try and prevent this kind of egregious mistake from occurring in the future.

We have strengthened our review process and several new safeguards have been put in place to both our Broadcast Standards & Practices and Entertainment Programming areas to ensure that segments like this are immediately brought to the attention of appropriate senior executives who can address them appropriately.

We have also done everything in our power to ensure that the segment receives no further exposure. We issued a written apology, the offending skit has been edited out of any future broadcast of that episode; we have taken down the clip from all of our online platforms; and the show has decided to forego any future segments of “Kids Table.”

In addition, Jimmy Kimmel has apologized on-air, in writing, and has personally met with concerned citizens to hear their viewpoints and to apologize, again, in person.

Please know that we take our responsibility to our viewers extremely seriously, and are confident that the steps we’ve taken will prevent this type of issue from happening again.
