Jimmy Kimmel Apologizes For His Impressions of Black Celebrities After 1996 Video Re-Emerges

Jimmy Kimmel has issued an apology over a resurfaced video of him using the N-word during an impersonation of Snoop Dogg.

His statement was issued on Tuesday, June 23, just a day after the video took over social media and fans reacted to it, calling on him to be “cancelled”.

“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. That delay was a mistake,” Jimmy shared in his apology.

He adds, “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.”

You can read his full apology below.

Another late night talk show host also apologized for his past racist comments and sketches earlier in the month.

Jimmy Kimmel Allegedly Uses Racial Slur in Resurfaced 1996 Video Impersonating Snoop Dogg

Jimmy Kimmel is under fire for allegedly using a racial slur multiple times in a video that has surfaced from 1996.

While we can’t verify that the audio from the video is Kimmel, he seemed to verify this news himself in a 2003 interview where he admitted to impersonating Snoop Dogg in a song titled “Christmastime in the LBC.”

About the song, Jimmy said, “This is when Snoop Dogg first came out, hit the scene, and I used to imitate him by only saying, ‘You know what I’m saying?’”

In the song, Jimmy seems to rap, “Me and my n—— down in LBC, we’ll smoke that motherf***er Christmas tree.”

The racial slur is used multiple times in the song including the lines, “fat n—– in a sleigh giving sh*t away” and also “n—– in the manger.”

DailyMail has audio of the song that you can listen to here.

We’re not sure if we can expect Jimmy to respond to these allegations anytime soon because of this recent announcement.

Megan Fox Once Talked About Being Sexualized by Michael Bay at 15 & The Quotes Are Going Viral Now

One of Megan Fox‘s old interviews is going viral and people are calling out both director Michael Bay and talk show host Jimmy Kimmel.

Back in 2009, Megan appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and talked about being an extra in Bad Boys II, which was directed by Bay. Years later, they worked together on the Transformers film franchise.

“I had just turned 15 and I was an extra in Bad Boys II,” Megan said. “They were shooting this club scene and they brought me in and I was wearing a stars and stripes bikini and a red cowboy hat and, like, six-inch heels. He approved it and they said, ‘Michael, she’s 15 so you can’t sit her at the bar and she can’t have a drink in her hand.’ So his solution to that problem was to then have me dancing underneath a waterfall getting soaking wet.”

“Perfectly wholesome,” Jimmy replied while the audience laughed.

“At 15, I was in 10th grade. That’s kind of a microcosm of how Bay’s mind works,” Megan replied. Jimmy then said, “Yeah, well that’s really a microcosm of how all our minds work.”

He then added, “Some of us have the decency to repress those thoughts and pretend that they don’t exist.”

A lot of people are calling out Jimmy for his inappropriate reaction to Megan‘s comments and they’re calling out Michael for sexualizing a 15-year-old.

Here’s why Megan credits the Transformers franchise to be part of a “low-point” in her career.
