In his tenure as a political commentator, Jesse has been involved in a fair share of controversies. The first one occurred when he kept asking Chinese Americans questions about Karate in a segment known as Chinatown segment. These drew criticism from press and people alike as it was considered racist towards Asian Americans.
The other controversy took place in 2017 when it was alleged that Jesse made sexist comments towards Ivanka Trump, daughter of Donald Trump when he said that the way she speaks to the microphone looks good. Watters denied that it was a sexist comment and said that he just meant it as a joke.
