Jimmy Fallon Blackface!!!!! Early Tuesday #JimmyFallonIsOverParty began trending after a 2000 “Saturday Night Live” sketch resurfaced where Jimmy Fallon performed as Chris Rock in dark make-up.
While this was not the first time this clip surfaced online, it kickstarted a firestorm of tweets calling for the late night host to be cancelled.sm@chefboyohdear
#jimmyfallonisoverparty if ur trying to see what he did
A caption for a video shared on Twitter read: “NBC fired Megan Kelly for mentioning blackface. Jimmy Fallon performed on NBC in blackface.”
“Megyn Kelly was dismissed for being insensitive in merely DISCUSSING kids wearing blackface on Halloween. Jimmy Fallon actually WORE blackface while impersonating Chris Rock. He’s still working for NBC,” read one tweet.
The video had resurfaced back in 2018 when Kelly was let go from “The Today Show” after she argued on air that wearing blackface for Halloween was acceptable.
And in 2019, Nick Cannon posted an Instagram of several comedians — including Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman — who wore Blackface and captioned it, “Happy ‘BLACKFACE’ History Month!!! ????? I’m sure we can expect some more ‘Apologies’ by Monday…”
Now, Fallon is under fire again, as he joins the ranks of other celebrities, such as Lana Del Rey and Doja Cat, facing backlash this week for actions or words deemed racially insensitive.
“I know I did not just open Twitter and see that Jimmy Fallon did blackface in 2000. Nobody is safe from Twitter when we got this much time in our hand. First Lana, then Doja Cat, and now Jimmy Fallon. Please let me catch my breath [sic]. #jimmyfallonisoverparty,” posted a social media user.Brent Bozell✔@BrentBozell
“It was ugly to watch a white guy imitating a black man’s voice, especially coming from Fallon,” reported Vanity Fair at the time.Introducing Naughty But Nice with Rob Shuter Meet your new best friend.
