Jimmy Kimmel Slammed Online Over N-Word Controversy

  • Jimmy Kimmel announced he would be taking a break from his late-night talk show last Thursday (June 18th)“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,”said Kimmel. 
  • But people on social media are joining in to cancel Kimmel after controversial Kimmel content is resurfacing. A blackface sketch has come back to haunt Kimmel, his use of the N-word and insensitive remarks he made as Megan Fox describes being oversexualized by director Michael Bay. 
  • Kimmel imitated Snoop Dogg on a comedy Christmas album back in 1996 where he used the N-word to describe Santa and baby Jesus. A clip of Kimmel in blackface shows him portraying Karl Malone and Oprah Winfrey. 
  • In an interview with Megan Fox, Kimmel joked after she detailed a scene where Bay had her dress in a bikini and dance under a waterfall. Kimmel is scheduled to host the Oscars on September 20th.
