'The Daily Show' Responds to Sacramento Kings T-shirt Controversy
Last week, we reported on the Sacramento Kings T-shirt controversy that resulted from their Year of the Monkey Chinese Lunar New Year T-shirt giveaway. DeMarcus Cousins felt that it was insensitive to release the T-shirt to fans on the first day of Black History Month, and the team pulled the T-shirt at the last minute.
Now, "The Daily Show" is responding to the controversy with its own take, featuring correspondent Ronny Chieng.
The over-the-top segment clearly tries to be borderline offensive, questioning why we should listen to Cousins, the "leader in technical fouls for, like, five seasons in a row," and pointing out that the Chinese tradition of choosing animals for each Lunar New Year dates back thousands of years and is based on the moon.
