Calls To Fire Jimmy Fallon Rise After Video of Host In Black Face Appears Online

 

Late night host Jimmy Fallon is now under fire, with many calling for his ouster, after a 20-year old video emerged of him donning black face during a Saturday Night Live skit. As The New York Post reports:

Jimmy Fallon is catching heat on social media over a resurfaced 2000 “Saturday Night Live” sketch featuring the former cast member in blackface.

The 45-year-old host of “The Tonight Show” went viral on Twitter overnight following a tweet with the hashtag #jimmyfallonisoverparty, and a 20-year-old “SNL” clip featuring Darrell Hammond and Fallon, face painted brown, doing an impersonation of Chris Rock.

The vintage skit, posted by @chefboyohdear, is captioned with the sentence, “NBC fired Megyn Kelly for mentioning blackface. Jimmy Fallon performed on NBC in blackface.”

The ensuing lament over the beloved broadcaster’s now-tarnished reputation was swift.

 

Should Fallon be fired for obvious racism, or are people simply overreacting to a harmless joke. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
