Comedian and performer Jimmy Fallon, host of NBC’s The Tonight Show, became the target of criticism Tuesday after video of him performing in blackface in a Saturday Night Live sketch in 2000 resurfaced, going viral on social media.

The sketch, “Regis co-host auditions,” in which Fallon plays comedian Chris Rock, is featured on NBC’s website — albeit without Fallon’s appearance.

The clip appeared online again on Monday night (or early Tuesday morning, Eastern time), with the caption: “NBC fired Megan Kelly for mentioning blackface. Jimmy Fallon performed on NBC in blackface.”

Critics began calling for Fallon to be dropped from The Tonight Show, and the hashtag #jimmyfallonisoverparty began trending on Twitter.

Others were skeptical: “At this point cancel culture might need to be canceled,” one tweeted.

The New York Daily News brought up the sketch last year, when SNL made fun of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, when photos surfaced from his medical school yearbook of him posing in blackface (or, alternatively, in a KKK hood).

“Live from New York, it’s a long line of ‘Saturday Night Live’ cast members dressed in blackface,” wroteGina Salamone at the time. “The sketch comedy show may want to take a look at its own history before mocking others for wearing the racist makeup. … The NBC show has shown prominent cast members, from Jimmy Fallon to Fred Armisen, in dark makeup long after the 1980s, as late as 2009.”

Fallon has been under fire from the left ever since interviewing presidential candidate Donald Trump in 2016. Fallon joked about Trump’s hair, and the candidate, promising it was real, invited Fallon to tousle it, which he then did.

Critics later accused Fallon of having “normalized” Trump, helping him somehow to win the election. Fallon apologized in 2018, saying that he had been “depressed” by the relentless criticism he received over the episode.

Look, no one despises cringy late night Boomer talk shows more than I do, and I hate libtards.

With that in mind, this is just fake outrage and a non-issue. Yes, blackface is racist and insensitive, but people are acting like this footage was secret and suddenly "discovered". Um, no: this was a fucking clip from a major television network seen by literal millions, albeit 20 years ago. But, the fact still remains: this isn't some leaked party footage like Prince Harry dressed as a Nazi, or some photo of Justin Trudeau in blackface during his college years...this is a mainstream TV comedy sketch from the longest-running show on arguably the largest American TV network. Sure, Gen-Z woketards weren't alive when this clip was broadcast, but that doesn't mean it was a"hidden" and recently "discovered".

who cares? SNL hasn't been good since chevy chase left (except for norm macdonald as weekend update's anchor)

Norm was too good for the show. They fired him for being too redpilled.

The least offensive thing this man has done is blackface, his most offensive is either "whats in uncle Jimmies pocket" , where he got women to try and touch his dick on T.V., and what he does to comedy every night.
I’m not sure if you’re joking, but I think that’s the wrong Jimmy.
But if this is a joke, then yeah, The Man Show is more hilarious than his late night show.

This link with the black guy on the video, that's Jimmy Fallon?

That's pretty good makeup from their department. Also, dude, it was the 90s-2000s. Damn near everybody worked blue. Well, blue by today's standards.

Also, this doesn't consist of "blackface"; Trudeau literally painted his face pure black a la minstrel shows in the 20th century.

They're reaching with this one. Of course it's Breitbart. They sound like the SJWs they love to mock with this one.

Wtf, how can you be 'caught' doing this when it was on a nationally televised show?

Fuck this, I can't stand Jimmy Fallon. But, trying to get him removed over THIS is ridiculous..

Some oulets are even reporting this as a scandle...I give up...

If Fallon has balls: he will get with Chris Rock and a makeup artist. Then, on the tonight show the two of them will do the monologue as the other person...
