A California lawmaker is calling for a boycott of companies that advertise on Rush Limbaugh's radio show after the conservative commentator refused to apologize for mocking China's president.

State Sen. Leland Yee launched the campaign after Limbaugh's Jan. 19 radio program, during which he did a nonsensical impression of Chinese President Hu Jintao's speech with President Barack Obama.

After Yee complained about Limbaugh's crude imitation, Limbaugh poked fun at the Chinese-American lawmaker, who's running for mayor of San Francisco.

Yee told the San Mateo County Times that Limbaugh's actions were "extremely hurtful" and damaging for children to hear.

Yee reached out to civil rights organizations Tuesday and launched an online petition asking people to join the boycott.
