Jimmy Kimmel is in a whole world of controversy after a clip of him in blackface resurfaced just days ago.
Kimmel is being asked to apologize for the resurfaced blackface sketches that aired during his days on Comedy Central’s “The Man Show” (1999-2004).
One of the sketches included him playing NBA star Karl Malone and a parody of The Oprah Winfrey Show called Oprah Jimfrey.
The sketches have ignited a massive amount of outrage on social medial, but so far Kimmel has stayed quiet.
However, he did say that he’s taking the summer off – coincidence?
I’ve been doing this job for almost 18 years. I’ve done 3,130 shows. And there’s nothing wrong, my family is healthy, I’m healthy, I just need a couple of months off.
Other people are claiming that Kimmel is completely cancelled after the news.
