ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday announced he will be taking the summer off after facing criticism over wearing blackface in a recurring skit he performed while working on “The Man Show” on Comedy Central.
Let me just say that I am no fan of performers in blackface, minstrel shows or any of that ‘step-n-fetchit’ style of so-called comedy, I have always seen it as cheap humor, demeaning and tragically unfunny. That said, I dislike even more the entertainment fascists on the Left who think they can tell us what we can and cannot watch, as if they had some sort of moral high ground which they certainly do not. Baby killers don’t get to dictate what’s right and what’s wrong because, clearly, they have no idea. Jimmy Kimmel is now woke, and hating every minute of it.
“The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right. But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand.” Isaiah 32:7,8 (KJB)
Now, far-Left, anti-Trump comedian Jimmy Kimmel, who loves to pontificate on his program against the evils of Conservatism, is feeling the sting of cancel culture as he is driven off of his own show, with others soon to follow. Whoever said that ‘Liberalism is a mental disease’ knew exactly what they were talking about. Nighty-night, Jimmy Kimmel, live by the sword you die by the sword.

FROM THE HILL: Jimmy Kimmel, as a co-host of the “The Man Show,” performed a recurring skit that included him dressed in blackface as then-NBA star Karl Malone. Videos and photos of the skits on the show, which ran from 1999-2004, have been circulating online recently with calls for Kimmel to apologize.
“I’m taking this summer off to spend even more time with my family,” Kimmel said on Thursday night from his home studio. “There’s nothing wrong. I’m healthy, my family’s healthy, I just need a couple of months off.”
“While I’m gone, a cavalcade of very kind and capable people will be filling in for me,” the 52-year-old added.

The announcement from Kimmel comes after rival “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon recently apologized for a blackface skit he did on “Saturday Night Live” in 2000.
“In 2000, while on SNL, I made a terrible decision to do an impersonation of Chris Rock while in blackface,” Fallon said on Twitter in late May following the police killing of African American George Floyd in Minneapolis. “There is no excuse for this. I am very sorry for making this unquestionably offensive decision and thank all of you for holding me accountable.”
Jimmy Kimmel began as host of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” 18 years ago and has taped 3,130 episodes over that stretch. The guest-hosted episodes will begin after Independence Day weekend on July 6. Kimmel is slated to host the Emmy Awards on ABC on Sept. 20.
He last took a leave of absence in 2017 when his infant son was born with a congenital disease that impacts the heart and underwent several surgeries as a result. The host reported on the show in September 2019 that his son “is doing great.”
Past guest hosts for Kimmel have included former 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg, along with actors Matt Damon, Will Arnett, Kristen Bell, Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt and Tracee Ellis Ross. READ MORE
