Roseanne is Gone, But Does ABC Remember Jimmy Kimmel’s Blackface Skits? — Videos

Roseanne Barr bore the brunt of a stupid tweet, resulting in the cancellation of her show by ABC, but the network continues to employ Jimmy Kimmel despite a past that includes skits in which he mocked a prominent athlete by using blackface.

In canceling Roseanne’s incredibly popular pro-Trump comedy, ABC issued a statement describing her tweet comparing Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to ‘Planet of the Apes’ as “abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values.”

Abhorrent.

Repugnant.

Inconsistent with our values.

Now think of those phrases as you watch this old clip of Jimmy Kimmel, current late night talk show host of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

Kimmel did multiple skits in which he mocked NBA Hall of Famer and member of the famed Dream Team, Karl Malone, by donning blackface and proceeding to butcher the English language in an attempt to portray ‘The Mailman’ as ignorant.

Is this in line with your precious moral values ABC?

In one skit Kimmel as Malone talks “about white people getting deducted by alien.” He sports blackface, a black bald cap, and apparently spray for his arms and legs.

In another episode, Kimmel speaks as Malone promoting Mardi Gras.

“Ya’ll love them naked boobies, so Karl Malone tell you about Mardi Gras in New Orleans,” he says.

Lovely. But hey, that’s totally cool because he now pushes a progressive agenda, right?

According to President Trump, Bob Iger, CEO of Disney which owns ABC, called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that “ABC does not tolerate comments like those” made by Roseanne Barr.

Instead, he tolerates the racist past antics of Kimmel. Tolerance, you see, is only reserved for dumb things leftists say and do in Hollywood. That’s why Roseanne never really had a chance.

For his part, Kimmel took a shot at Roseanne during his own show saying her comments “did not sit well with ABC management — or anyone with a brain, really.”

What do the folks at his network – those with brains anyway – think of Kimmel’s blackface skits? We’d sure like to know.
