Rosie O'Donnell on 'The View' (2006)

While discussing Danny DeVito's intoxicated appearance on "The View," co-host Rosie O'Donnell joked that the incident was so heavily talked about, they were even speaking of it in China. "You know, you can imagine in China it's like, 'Ching-chong, ching-chong. Danny DeVito. Ching-chong, ching-chong-chong. Drunk. The View. Ching-chong.'" Nine days and a heap of controversy later, O'Donnell apologized on "The View," stating: "To anyone who was offended at my Chinese, Asian, pseudo-Japanese, sounded-a-little-Yiddish accent that I was doing, you know, it was never [my] intent to mock, and I'm sorry for those who felt hurt or were teased on the playground."
