Oh! How the mighty have fallen.
It’s hilarious to see liberals held up to their own standards.
They’re so quick to crucify conservatives when they have their own skeletons in the closet.
A fresh tape has now emerged from the Jimmy Kimmel Show showing Kimmel making light of Megan Fox feeling sexualized at the age of 15 by director Michael Bay.
Here’s an update from the Daily Wire on Kimmel’s controversy:
An uncomfortable interview with actress Megan Fox on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” has resurfaced following reports of the embattled host allegedly saying the N-word on a past Christmas album and donning blackface in old “Man Show” sketches.
During the interview with Fox, Kimmel approvingly laughs when the actress recalled director Michael Bay allegedly sexualizing her when she was just 15 years old.
During one scene, Bay apparently directed a young Fox, who had “just turned 15,” to stand under a waterfall while wearing a bikini and heels, since she was too young to be sitting at a bar.
“[Bay’s] solution to that problem was to then have me dancing under a waterfall getting soaking wet,” Fox told Kimmel, according to Fox News. “At 15, I was in 10th grade. That’s sort of a microcosm of how Bay’s mind works.”
Kimmel approvingly laughed, adding, “Well that’s really a microcosm of how all our minds work, but some of us have the decency to repress those thoughts and pretend that they don’t exist.”
During the same “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” show, the host jokingly showed off a picture he drew of him and Fox in a bed apparently making out together, Fox News noted.

This isn’t Kimmel’s only recent controversy.
Believe it or not, he’s also under fire for performing in blackface in the past!
According to Fox News, many are blasting his reaction as a “non-apology”:
Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel was blasted for what critics call a “non-apology” addressing his history of wearing blackface.
On Tuesday, just one day after Fox News obtained audio of his 1996 use of the N-word in a song impersonating Snoop Dogg, Kimmel issued a statement to Fox News about his use of blackface during his tenure hosting “The Man Show” in the early 2000s, most notably while impersonating former NBA star Karl Malone.
“I have long been reluctant to address this, as I knew doing so would be celebrated as a victory by those who equate apologies with weakness and cheer for leaders who use prejudice to divide us. That delay was a mistake. There is nothing more important to me than your respect, and I apologize to those who were genuinely hurt or offended by the makeup I wore or the words I spoke,” Kimmel began his statement.
“We hired makeup artists to make me look as much like Karl Malone as possible. I never considered that this might be seen as anything other than an imitation of a fellow human being, one that had no more to do with Karl’s skin color than it did his bulging muscles and bald head. I’ve done dozens of impressions of famous people, including Snoop Dogg, Oprah, Eminem, Dick Vitale, Rosie, and many others. In each case, I thought of them as impersonations of celebrities and nothing more,” Kimmel said in the statement. “Looking back, many of these sketches are embarrassing, and it is frustrating that these thoughtless moments have become a weapon used by some to diminish my criticisms of social and other injustices.”
While the “Jimmy Kimmel Live” host insisted that he has “evolved” since his days on the Comedy Central program, he claimed that his past use of blackface “will be used to try to quiet me.”
“I won’t be bullied into silence by those who feign outrage to advance their oppressive and genuinely racist agendas,” Kimmel vowed.
He added, “Thank you for giving me an opportunity to explain and to those I’ve disappointed, I am sorry.”
However, the late-night host was slammed for drawing so much focus on his critics he suggests are the real racists instead of reflecting on his own misdeeds.
“People aren’t ‘feigning outrage,’ you disingenuous fraud @jimmykimmel,” Donald Trump Jr. told the ABC star. “We’re pointing out the utter hypocrisy of you & your lib friends always trying to cancel YOUR political enemies, but refusing to hold yourselves to the same woke standards. This ‘apology’ proves that point.”
“Kimmel went with the Weinstein ‘I’m fighting the NRA defense,'” conservative commentator Stephen Miller reacted, referring to disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein’s initial response to the sexual assault allegations.
“Spare us, Jimmy. You’ve called for the destruction of people for lesser offenses. You think ‘I know my motives, and I’m not racist. It was a joke,’ but you’ve torched those who said the same exact thing. You shouldn’t be canceled, but the people before you shouldn’t have either,” The Blaze’s Jessica Fletcher wrote.
“This reads a bit like ‘how dare you hold me to the same standard the @washingtonpost applies to randos, you racists,'” Hot Air senior editor Ed Morrisey said, invoking the criticized report about the Washington Post who recently targeted a woman who wore blackface at a staffer’s Halloween party in 2018.
