The entire country is up in arms this week after a blackface controversy came back to haunt Gov. Ralph Northam (D-VA), and while late night hosts everywhere are commenting on it, two of the most popular hosts have stayed noticeably silent.
Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon have yet to discuss the blackface controversy that is making headlines, and while they may be doing it in part to protect one of their beloved liberals, they both have a very personal reason to stay quiet about this. It turns out that Kimmel and Fallon both have blackface skeletons in their closets that could very well destroy both of their careers in no time.
Fox News reported that Kimmel wore blackface years ago as he mocked NBA player Karl Malone in a sketch for Comedy Central.
This isn’t the only time Kimmel publicly wore blackface, as he also wore it to impersonate Oprah Winfrey.
Fallon is another late night host who is no stranger to blackface. Back in his days on “Saturday Night Live,” Fallon wore blackface to impersonate Chris Rock during a sketch.
Why are Kimmel and Fallon getting away with blackface?
If Kimmel and Fallon were conservative, or even apolitical, these videos would have already destroyed their careers. Kevin Hart and Liam Neeson, both of whom strive to stay out of politics, are currently seeing their careers crash and burn for homophobic and racist incidents that they have each profusely apologized for. Neither Kimmel nor Fallon has apologized for wearing blackface, but in the eyes of the left, they don’t need to because they play a crucial role in spreading anti-Trump liberal propaganda.
Kimmel and Fallon have the full protection of politically correct liberals because their shows are major platforms for spreading Democratic ideologies. Accusations of racism and homophobia have become tools of the left to silence conservatives and apolitical figures who are doing nothing to further the leftwing agenda. Since Kimmel and Fallon are doing their part in attacking Trump, they have been given free passes when it comes to their racist pasts.
