Jimmy Kimmel, the king of wokeness and host of ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” finally issued a so-called apology after reports emerged that he used the N-word several times during 1996 Christmas album along with other troubling revelations that resulted in allegations of racism.
Kimmel took the standard liberal apology by acknowledging those he might have hurt by his actions, while also managing to get the message across that he’s not the bad guy– it’s President Trump.

“I have long been reluctant to address this, as I knew doing so would be celebrated as a victory by those who equate apologies with weakness and cheer for leaders who use prejudice to divide us,” he said, a clear attack on—you guessed it!—Trump. “That delay was a mistake. There is nothing more important to me than your respect, and I apologize to those who were genuinely hurt or offended by the makeup I wore or the words I spoke.”
What was most troubling about Kimmel is the fact that it was not just one incident (which would be bad enough) where he wore blackface to imitate the former black basketball star, Karl Malone, who he oddly called a “fellow human being” in his apology.
But there seems to be a trend with his drive to parody African Americans. Fox News pointed out that the funnyman “changed his speech pattern” to imitate the voice of black comedian George Wallace during a podcast. Adam Carolla, who was the podcast host, reportedly called it Kimmel’s “crazy black voice,” as though this was something of a parlor trick.
“Jimmy, do you only do black people?” someone asks on the 2013 podcast, Fox News reported.
“I prefer them, yes,” Kimmel said, apparently jokingly.
Fox News pointed out that in the Christmas album, Kimmel, said, “Me and my n—– down in LBC, we’ll smoke that motherf—— Christmas tree.”
Donald Trump Jr. pointed out ABC and Kimmel’s apparent hypocrisy. He called out Kimmel who said in his apology that people are “feigning outrage” over his past actions.
“We’re pointing out the utter hypocrisy of you & your lib friends always trying to cancel YOUR political enemies, but refusing to hold yourselves to the same woke standards. This “apology” proves that point.”
Trump retweeted Greg Price, the social media director at the Daily Caller, who retweeted the Kimmel apology, and said, “If Jimmy Kimmel were a host on Fox News, Sleeping Giants and Media Matters would immediately be launching advertiser boycotts and that person would more than likely be booted off the air. This is why you should never apologize or back down when the mob comes after you.”
Trump pointed out that ABC fired Roseanne Barr very quickly after an inappropriate joke.
“I’m simply anti-double standards for conservatives & libs,” he said. “So either cancel Kimmel or give Rosanne her show back.”
