Jimmy did an imitation of actor Chris Rock, and used makeup to make her skin darker, the well-known “blackface”. “data-reactid =” 24 “> The controversy began when the presenter of the show” The Tonight Show “was part of” Saturday Night Live “, in the year 2000, where Jimmy did an imitation of actor Chris Rock, and used makeup to make her skin darker, the well-known “blackface”.
Said video is not recent, since two years ago the clip was shared, after the host Megyn Kelly will be fired from the program The Today Show on NBC, for making a comment in which she says that the “blackface” can be used for a Halloween costume.
Despite the fact that this video has been published for 20 years, Internet users gave their opinion on Twitter, many in favor and others against.
People are ACTUALLY defending jimmy Fallon for doing black face saying “he was doing a skit, it was a impersonation” I just don’t have any faith in this world anymore … how could you be so brain dead! You guys don’t even know the definition of blackface #jimmyfallonisoverparty pic.twitter.com/2Tmq7uktPQ

After the stir caused by the resurgence of the video on social networks, Jimmy Fallon faced criticism and apologized for his “terrible decision to imitate Chris Rock”.
In 2000, while on SNL, I made a terrible decision to do an impersonation of Chris Rock while in blackface. There is no excuse for this.
I am very sorry for making this unquestionably offensive decision and thank all of you for holding me accountable.
