The Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel’s 5 most embarrassing moments

youngNow you can listen to Fox News articles!

Sunday is the annual Oscars, and Jimmy Kimmel is hosting for the third time. If you’re desperate enough to attend the first post-slap Oscars event, you’re still stuck with one of the most annoying hosts money can buy.

CNN named Kimmel “America’s conscience” in 2017, oddly claiming, “Kimmel has never sought the mantle of political activism.” (Continue when you’re done laughing.)

Just a few months later, as ABC promoted the 2018 Oscars, Kimmel was interviewed on “Good Morning America.” He was unapologetic when asked about his political comments: “I don’t think you can go too far.”

Kimmel certainly embraces a vicious, anti-conservative attitude. With that comment in mind, here are the five most embarrassing moments of Kimmel’s career to serve as a reminder that yes, you can overdo it.


Kimmel and R. Kelly

Kimmel has had a strange way of treating women since he was on “The Man Show.” One of the highlights of this show was young women jumping up and down on trampolines. The women were called “the Juggies.”

Fast forward to December 4, 2013, where Kimmel gave a very friendly interview to singer R. Kelly, who already had a history of sex crime allegations dating back more than a decade. Kimmel didn’t discuss any of that, including the singer’s previous marriage to 15-year-old Aaliyah Haughton. This is not a typo. Fifteen.

Kelly told how he was inspired to name his latest album, “Black Panties.” Kimmel followed it up with the comment, “There’s so much I could learn from you.” What, one wonders, and do we want to know?

It’s worth noting that Kelly is serving a 30-year sentence after being convicted in 2021 of sexually abusing young fans. He was also found guilty of three counts of child pornography and three counts of luring children.

Mocking people who died of COVID-19

Kimmel hates conservatives. No, that understates the case. Maybe loathing is a better word. In September 2021, in the midst of the pandemic, he mocked people who died from the virus.

“Basically, if your state has more GEDs than Ph.D.s, stay home. Of the 54,000 Americans who have died from COVID since the beginning of the summer, nearly one in five of them died in Florida. My God, all those orphaned ferrets It’s a shame,” he said.

Kimmel, of course, didn’t remind his audience that the virus particularly hits the elderly. He didn’t care to tell viewers that Florida has an aging population, which helped explain the death toll. Instead, he chose to mock them.


Kimmel makes fun of black people

It’s hard to know where to start with Kimmel and racial issues. He appeared in Blackface, dropped the “N” word several times and impersonated a Black comedian. For most people, any of these things can get you canceled or slapped at the Oscars.

But Kimmel is a big leftist who uses his show to attack the right. It’s his golden ticket out of celebrity trouble every time. The blackface controversy chased him to the sidelines in 2020. But the “N” word is almost universally considered the six-letter, four-letter word — even for comics.

He did this by voicing an imitation of rapper Snoop Dogg on a 1996 Christmas album. This song featured Kimmel using the “N-word” several times.

Maybe the Oscars should have tried a different “N-word.” No.

Kimmel makes gay jokes about his enemies

Kimmel doesn’t just have an enemies list. He has an enemy list that he pretends to be gay. He mocked Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC, as he was upstaged by Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker. (It’s pretty bad, so you can guess what he said.) He also said in another segment, “Trump’s Attorney General, William Barr, who used to lean forward when the president asked him to.”

That wasn’t the worst. He skewered then-Missouri GOP Rep. Vicki Hartzler for daring to oppose the same-sex marriage bill. He played a video clip of her and followed it up with: “So wait, isn’t this woman a lesbian? I mean, her mouth might say ‘independent bigot’ but her haircut says ‘meet my partner Bev.’

Imagine for a moment if a conservative had made that joke about a liberal MP. You would have seen a quicker exit from “GMA3” anchors TJ Holmes and Amy Robach, after the news of their relationship.


Another visit to Florida

Like many in legacy media and entertainment, Kimmel’s job is to attack potential Republican presidential candidates and anyone who might support them. The press is particularly concerned about Florida Governor Ron DeSandis.

Cue a classic Kimmel comparison: “In North Korea, America, in the Sunshine State, from time to time, we enjoy looking at what’s going on, and tonight we do it again in an edition of Gov. DeSantis of ‘This Week in Florida.'”


North Korea, totalitarian, backward, technologically inferior. Florida, free, economically and technologically advanced. So much so that people flock there. Great comparison Jimmy.

By choosing Kimmel again, however, Hollywood went from “Oscars so white” to Oscars so wut?
