A Sky News TV host has seen his career end at the network after he was fired for making deeply racist comments about Chinese people visiting Disneyland.
According to the Guardian, commentator Ross Cameron has been shown the door after first making a stab at defending the Chinese saying, “The Chinese civilisation is the oldest continuing civilization in the world, OK; it is not going anywhere.”
Adding that Chinese people swarm Shanghai Disneyland because they “like and enjoy and embrace many aspects of Western culture,” Cameron made the comment that got him sacked.
“If you go to the Disneyland in Shanghai on any typical morning of the week, you’ll see 20,000 black-haired, slanty-eyed, yellow-skinned Chinese, desperate to get into Disneyland,” he said.
Cameron — the co-host of Outsiders — was called out by the network which described his comment as “unacceptable.”
“Sky News is committed to robust discussion and debate, however this language is totally unacceptable,” said Sky News chief executive Paul Whittaker.
Prior to his television stint, Cameron served as a Liberal member of NSW parliament from 1996 to 2004 representing Parramatta.
The late-night host was previously notable for taking to the airwaves to defend President Donald Trump.

Lawrence O’Donnell throttles Donny Deutsch for saying Elizabeth Warren can’t beat Trump: ‘This is pure guesswork’
Lawrence O'Donnell and Donny Deutsch had quite the exchange in the post-debate conversation on MSNBC Wednesday.
Deutsch tried to say that Sen. Elizabeth Warren's outstanding debate performance doesn't matter because Warren can't win in a match-up against President Donald Trump.
"I do not believe Elizabeth Warren, on stage with Donald Trump, beats him," he told the MSNBC panel. "And I think if we're honest with ourselves and we look hard at ourselves, I think a lot of people agree with me. It's — and I also think when you can label somebody a socialist, 57 percent of this country thinks that word is un-American. I'm not saying it's fair. When he can blanket Elizabeth Warren as a socialist, and he's on stage with her, the Democrats lose."
Father and daughter drowning at the border fuels anger at Trump immigration policies
A shocking photograph of a Salvadoran man and his baby daughter drowned in the Rio Grande fueled a surge of emotion around the world Wednesday -- as US Democrats furiously denounced Donald Trump's immigration policies.
"Trump is responsible for these deaths," said Beto O'Rourke, one of several Democratic White House hopefuls who took to Twitter to lash out at the president.
Former vice president Joe Biden, who is also seeking the presidency in 2020, called the image "gut-wrenching."
"History will judge how we respond to the Trump administration's treatment of immigrant families & children -- we can't be silent," he said.
Senator Elizabeth Warren leads Democrats in spirited first 2020 debate
Ten Democrats clashed in the first debate of the 2020 presidential race Wednesday with Elizabeth Warren cementing her status as a top-tier candidate and several underdogs using the issue of immigration to clamor for the limelight.
The biggest American political debate since the 2016 presidential campaign is occurring over two nights in Miami, climaxing Thursday with former vice president Joe Biden squaring off against nine challengers, including number two candidate Bernie Sanders.
But Wednesday's first take was a spirited encounter between Democrats like ex-congressman Beto O'Rourke, Senator Cory Booker, former San Antonio mayor Julian Castro and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio on subjects as varied as health care, economic inequality, climate action, gun violence, Iran and immigration.
