A Chinese primary school teacher and a beautician have filed a suit against CNN in New York over remarks they say insulted the Chinese people.
They want $1.37 billion in compensation - $1.06 per person in China, a Hong Kong newspaper reports.
The case against the Atlanta-based cable channel, its parent company Turner Broadcasting and Jack Cafferty, the offending commentator, comes after 14 lawyers launched a similar suit in Beijing alleging that Cafferty's remarks earlier this month violated the dignity and reputation of the Chinese people.
Cafferty said the United States imported Chinese-made "junk with the lead paint on them and the poisoned pet food".
He added: "They're basically the same bunch of goons and thugs they've been for the last 50 years".
