The popular CBS reality show "The Amazing Race" is under fire for featuring an episode set in Hanoi, Vietnam, where contestants go to a B-52 Memorial, which is the wreckage of an American bomber plane shot down during the Vietnam War, to find the next clue in their televised round-the-world journey.
In the episode, the twisted metal of the downed plane is treated as any other prop, with a bright 'Amazing Race' 'Double-U-Turn' signed planted in front of it, signifying to contestants the next phase of their scavenger hunt.
The show also had contestants learn a song that was performed for them by children in front of a portrait of North Vietnam communist leader Ho Chi Minh, with subtitled lyrics that included "Vietnam Communist Party is glorious. The light is guiding us to victory."
"It's like One Direction," one contestant said of the performance, referring to the popular boy band.
"How did it not cross the producers' minds that this might offend the men who fought in Vietnam and the families of those who died there?" Fox News' Greg Gutfeld said on his late night show "Red Eye."
