The cancel culture is now going after Jimmy Fallon
ETA: Jimmy issues apology

quote:

Fallon was facing backlash on social media after Twitter users put a spotlight on an old sketch when he impersonated comedian Chris Rock and had darkened his face with makeup, and the hashtag #JimmyFallonIsOverParty began trending on the platform.

"In 2000, while on SNL, I made a terrible decision to do an impersonation of Chris Rock while in blackface. There is no excuse for this," Fallon later tweeted. "I am very sorry for making this unquestionably offensive decision and thank all of you for holding me accountable."




quote:

Jimmy Fallon is catching heat on social media over a resurfaced 2000 “Saturday Night Live” sketch featuring the former cast member in blackface.

The 45-year-old host of “The Tonight Show” went viral on Twitter overnight following a tweet with the hashtag #jimmyfallonisoverparty, and a 20-year-old “SNL” clip featuring Darrell Hammond and Fallon, face painted brown, doing an impersonation of Chris Rock.

The vintage skit, posted by @chefboyohdear, is captioned with the sentence, “NBC fired Megyn Kelly for mentioning blackface. Jimmy Fallon performed on NBC in blackface.”

I would have no problem with Fallon or any other late night host being cancelled.

Shit, no one tell them about Al Jolson! They’ll try to retroactively revoke all his awards.

Fallon and Kimmels shows need to be cancelled immediately

Its probably because Jimmy doesn't hate the president enough and is actually funny. Unlike cuck bitch Jimmy Kimmel who was on a show in the 90s that talked about titties and beer, but that's not relevant.

And now you have to ask about selective targeting because the Kimmel bit was from the same era and it’s not exactly a secret.

So what, if you schill for the left your record gets expunged but right and moderate (even if just vocally) needs to be lily white even by changed cultural norms decades later?

Jimmy Fallon has never been very political, though

I cant take Jimmy Kimmel seriously after watching him cry on National tv after a lion got shot.

I never thought of Fallon as an outwardly progressive kinda guy. Seemed like he tried to do more universal appeal kind of sketches.
