Jon Stewart's 'Daily Show' Airs Controversial Video Debate Featuring Redskins Fans & Native Americans - Watch Now

Jon Stewart and The Daily Show With Jon Stewart aired a very controversial segment on the show on Thursday (September 25) which featured Washington Redskins fans and Native Americans to reveal their feelings about the NFL mascot before bringing them face-to-face.

“Some of the individuals who participated in the piece—they didn’t enjoy the experience. We take the complaints seriously,” the 51-year-old talk show host said before the segment aired. “We work very hard to find real people who have real beliefs and want to express those beliefs on television. And we work hard to make sure the gist of those beliefs are represented accurately, albeit sometimes comedically on our program. If we find out someone in a piece was intentionally misled, or if their comments were intentionally misrepresented, we do not air that piece. We would not air that piece.”

After the segment aired, many felt upset at the way everything went down – and the participants seemed upset as well.

“They told us they were going to have a fan panel, and, at some other time, they were going to do a panel with Native Americans,” one participant said about feeling duper (via the Washington Post). “So I said back, ‘Just to clarify, specifically, we’re not doing a cross-panel discussion right?’ The producer said, ‘Yeah, right. That would be too serious for Comedy Central.’
