Jimmy Fallon Addresses Blackface 'SNL' Sketch, Reveals What 'Haunted' Him

Jimmy Fallon addressed his 2000 Saturday Night Live sketch that resurfaced last week where he was seen wearing blackface to portray Chris Rock.

On the Tonight Show on Monday (June 1), Jimmy began the show saying that it would be “a different kind of show.”

“That’s where we all need to start, with ourselves and looking at ourselves in the mirror,” Jimmy said. “I had to really examine myself in the mirror this week because a story came out about me on SNL doing an impression of Chris Rock in blackface. And I was horrified. Not of people trying to ‘cancel’ me or cancel this show, which is scary enough. The thing that haunted me the most was, how do I say I love this person?”

“I respect this guy more than I respect most humans,” Jimmy continued. “I’m not a racist. I don’t feel this way.”

“I realized that I can’t not say I’m horrified and I’m sorry and I’m embarrassed,” Jimmy added. “I realized that the silence is the biggest crime that white guys like me and the rest of us are doing, staying silent. We need to say something. We need to keep saying something. And we need to stop saying ‘that’s not OK’ more than just one day on Twitter.”

He welcomed President and CEO of the NAACP Derrick Johnson as one of his guests, and admitted he “needed to get educated.”
