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.

Trump’s own investigators couldn’t find any deep-state conspiracy in Russia probe
President Donald Trump and his Justice Department appointed their own investigator and prosecutor to look into Robert Mueller's team as well as the FBI agents that dealt with the early days of the Russia investigation. Not surprisingly, after extensive international travel, interviews with high-level foreign officials and a desperate need to verify a conspiracy, nothing could be found.
The New York Times revealed the Trump humiliation Friday, saying that the final report will "debunk a series of conspiracy theories and insinuations about the F.B.I. that Mr. Trump and his allies have put forward over the past two years, the people said, though they cautioned that the report is not complete. The New York Times has not reviewed the draft, which could contain other significant findings."
