Late night time host Jimmy Kimmel is being accused of “white privilege” after overshadowing
“Abbott Elementary” star-creator Quinta Brunson’s 2022 Emmys speech with a decidedly obnoxious sketch. Footage of the stunt goes viral as awards present followers rip the funnyman for allegedly ruining her large second.

For the uninitiated, the inflammatory second occurred after presenter Will Arnett dragged the 54-year-old “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” host on stage for a skit earlier than asserting the winner for Best Writing in a Comedy Series on the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards Show in Los Angeles.

“Jimmy couldn’t be right here tonight,” Arnett, 52 joked whereas addressing his “handed out” co-host. He added that “Jimmy had gotten into the thin margaritas” after dropping the Emmy for his late-night collection for the “thirteenth time in a row.”

The sketch garnered audible guffaws — and groans — from the group. However, issues took a flip after Arnett introduced that Quinta had received the Emmy for her ABC collection “Abbot Elementary,” whereupon Kimmel shockingly remained on stage for the length of her speech. At one level, Quinta even tried to awaken him by saying “Jimmy get up, I received,” however the former “Man Show” host stayed put.

Twitter wasn’t about to take the TV host’s antics mendacity down.

“So Jimmy Kimmel is actually gonna upstage her speech by laying on the ground in entrance of her?” fumed one incensed viewer. “Like what the f–ok.”

Another chastised, “Jimmy Kimmel ought to have left the stage throughout Quinta’s speech. Highly disrespectful.”

Many accused the host of epitomizing “white male privilege” with one critic writing, “If #QuintaBrunson stepping over #JimmyKimmel who actually laid in her highlight on the day she received an Emmy isn’t a metaphor for what it means to be a WOC in a white mans world I don’t know what’s.”

One offended Twitter publish seconded their sentiment, writing: “Jimmy Kimmel owes Quinta an apology however the tousled half is each picture of her accepting her award has his ass in it. White males actually are unbearable.”

“CAN SOMEONE TELL THE HUMAN PERSONIFICATION OF WHITE MALE PRIVILEGE THAT IS @jimmykimmel THAT HE IS NOT ENTITLED TO TAKE UP *ALL* THE SPACE—ESPECIALLY WHEN THAT SPACE BELONGS TO @quintabrunson WHO HAD TO LITERALLY NAVIGATE AROUND HIM TO ACCEPT HER HISTORIC #EMMY,” exclaimed another enraged commenter.

“Me watching black twitter give Jimmy Kimmel the dragging he deserves. I find it irresistible,” mentioned one schadenfreude-filled viewer of the host’s supposed on-line comeuppance.

Despite Twitter’s discontentment with the skit, Brunson mentioned backstage that she didn’t mind Kimmel’s antics.

“I do know Jimmy Kimmel. The bit didn’t hassle me,” admitted the writer-actress, who’s slated to seem on Kimmel’s late night show Wednesday. “Honestly, Jimmy gave me my first large late-night spot, he was one of the primary folks to see ‘Abbott Elementary.’ He was the primary individual to message me on Instagram.”

She added, “He was so excited it was going to be on ABC. I used to be completely satisfied it was Jimmy. He’s one of the comedy godfathers.”

Although Brunson cheekily joked that perhaps she’d “punch him” throughout her visitor look as revenge for his antics.
