This embedded poster perfectly sums up how much of Chinatown feels about Fox News minion Jesse Watters. The life-size flyer was found on the street (unclear exactly where), depicting a defiled image of the man. The bilingual calls Watters a “racist little pussy,” and beckons pedestrians to “violate me, spit on me, make me your bitch.”

It was exactly a week ago when Watters was sent on assignment to Chinatown for boss Bill O’Reilly. The goal was a light piece on Chinese voter sentiment in the upcoming presidential election, yet morphed into a nasty, bigoted segment that tapped every stereotype in the book.

The “Watters’ World” piece drew universal ire from all corners, and created swift backlash. The Daily Show brilliantly put it into perspective, as only they can, debunking the segment and talking to locals.

This poster says it all…
