Twitter Says Some Guy’s Uncle From Zimbabwe is Better Than Jesse Watters, Who Should Be ‘Fired Immediately’

Following Jesse Watters‘ racist remark on immigration, members of the media castigated the Fox News host for his nativist rhetoric, one even calling for his firing.

The uproar was sparked by Monday night during Watters’ appearance on The Five, when he argued in favor of President Donald Trump‘s merit-based immigration agenda, saying it would attract “the best and brightest” rather than “some guy’s uncle from Zimbabwe.”

Watters was immediately called out on Twitter for his bigotry, some users suggesting “some guy’s uncle from Zimbabwe” likely contributes more to the U.S. than him.

Talk show great Montel Williams even jumped in, asking what was wrong with Watters that he’d make such a statement.
