Fox News' Jesse Watters often using racial stereotypes to make fun of the people he interviews for his many Bill O'Reilly segments, and comedian Jason Selvig, a political prankster turned the tables on him for a few minutes.

While doing promotion his new Netflix movie, "Undecided, " Selvig caught up with Watters on the streets of New York and harassed him in the same way that Watters seeks out his own victims.

“Hello,” Selvig said in his best stereotypically racist Asian accent when he first accosted Watters with a camera crew in tow.

“Pretty good, right? It’s racist like you like,” he joked to Watters.As an obviously startled Watters attempted to get away, Selvig chased him down (similar to how Watters chased down Sen. Bernie Sanders down a Congressional hallway) to shout horribly offensive ideas in his face.“Just a bunch of black people eating fried chicken?”

“How about just Mexicans eating tacos?”

“Oh just like, call all Muslims terrorists,” Selvig said to Watters. “I guess you guys already do.”

Selvig finished off the interview by stating, "Watch Undecided on Netflix, endorsed by Fox News."
